Biona Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 200g
Organic, raw virgin coconut oil.Average Reviews Customer Reviews Write Review
Fresh coconuts are peeled and dried then after careful pressing the coconut oil is simply filtered. There is no bleaching or pasteurisation, so this virgin coconut oil maintains all it's natural flavour and and goodness.
Coconut oil is a naturally saturated oil which is free from trans-fats. For this reason it is stable at high temperatures so is a great oil to use for cooking if you want to avoid trans-fats. Coconut oil is high in aluric acid (one of the main components in breast milk) and lends a rich & flavourful nutritious boost to salad dressings and smoothies
Coconut oil is not only highly nutritious, it is also effective as an all purpose moisturiser and natural hair and body conditioner. It is suitable for everyone - from protecting sensitive baby skin to nourishing and softening rough calloused work worn hands (and feet!).
- Cooking & Baking Suitable for all types of cooking, baking and high temperature frying. Perfect for all Asian dishes.
- Salad Dressings & Smoothies Use as an alternative to other oils in salad dressings or as a base for smoothies and desserts
- Dairy free spread Coconut oil can be used to replace butter, margarine or other spread. It's got a fantastic flavour and makes a great dairy free spread.
- Hair & Body Care Can be used externally to nourish skin and hair.
- Anti-fungal Action Coconut oil contains lauric acid, which has anti-fungal properties - you could even try massaging between your toes if you are prone to athlete's foot.

This coconut oil is just lovely, it smells gorgeous, though only tastes very mild. I licked the spoon I used to get some out of the jar - when else can you do that with an oil you're about to cook with? Lovely. I slathered it on 1cm Aubergine slices before sprinkling over dried thyme,oregano and a little natural salt and grilling until golden. Gorgeous. Reviewer's Name:

I use it on my hair and minor cuts, and it works fast and -quite literally- brilliantly!
The smell is very pleasant, not too strong. When used in cooking, it has a surprisingly buttery taste. This is a very good buy.Reviewer's Name:

Wow I wish I'd discovered this years ago!! It has virtually no taste unlike olive oil so doesn't taint delicate flavours. It works brilliantly both in cooking and as the other reviewers have said, on skin and hair. It seems expensive but lasts and lasts as you only need a tiny bit at a time. Fabulous product.

I love this coconut oil! You can smell the coconut when you open it so you can tell it's really good quality, unlike the coconut oil you can get in supermarkets. I've used it for multiple different things, as a moisturiser, hair conditioner, frying, in baking. It's brilliant!Reviewer's Name:

This is a great quality product, and although it seems expensive, as other reviewers have said it lasts a long time. Also the Biona one is very good value compared to other brands. Great in all types of cooking, it's supposed to be one of the healthiest for cooking with at high temperatures because it doesn't get damaged by the heat. I use it in baking and when frying onions for soups etc, even to fry eggs. As it's virgin it does smell lovely and coconutty, but if you're cooking something and don't want the flavour just heating it for a while removes it. Reviewer's Name:

Tips Excellent Body Moisturiser -
Sat 24th Jan 2009
Initially bought this for a raw vegan chocolate cake recipe (which was delicious and courtesy of Raw Food Fairies) but it is also great as a body moisturiser. Keep it at room temperature and scoop out a small amount which quickly melts into skin (a little goes a long way). It's organic and just one ingredient, so why pay a fortune for a body moisturiser with a long ingredient list, when this is just as effective and smells like Hawaii. Also great for the hair!Reviewer's Name:

I love coconut oil, and Biona's is very high quality. It is excellent to use for moisturising skin, as a replacement for butter in cooking and baking (especially with sweet recipes), and for cleaning teeth. Reviewer's Name:
