So, what is refined coconut oil?

Refined coconut oil is a versatile and popular cooking ingredient that is extracted from the meat of mature coconuts. It is a highly processed form of coconut oil, which means it has been bleached, deodorized, and sometimes even hydrogenated to remove any impurities or flavors. This results in a neutral-tasting oil with a high smoke point, making it ideal for cooking at high temperatures. Refined coconut oil is also used extensively in the cosmetics industry for its moisturizing properties and is often found in lotions, soaps, and other personal care products. While some people prefer unrefined coconut oil for its more natural and robust flavor, refined coconut oil is a great option for those who want a versatile and neutral-tasting oil for their cooking needs.
