We love coconut oil! We use it in raw food treats and add it to our smoothies. It contains a medium chain fatty acid that is very good for you. Tropical traditions coconut oil is very good. I used it primarily in my smoothies. I figure if a coconut is going to be good- in a smoothie is where it will shine! It did. It added a wonderful coconuty flavor to my smoothies- which we love. Check out there website– they have a world of information about coconut oil.
