Coconut Oil is known for its antiviral and antibacterial activity, as well as anti-inflammatory. Coconut oil is available in cold-pressed and refined form. Flavor and antioxidant retention are the two main benefits of choosing cold-pressed coconut oil over refined. However, you should know that there’s a place for both forms of coconut oil in the kitchen, depending on the situation.

There’s a place for both refined and unrefined coconut oil depending on the situation. Refined coconut oil is excellent for sautéing and stir-frying where you’re cooking at a higher heat point and desire a neutral flavor. Cold-pressed coconut oil is best for medium-heat cooking and excellent for baking and recipes where you want to impart a delicate coconut flavor.

Unrefined coconut oil is excellent if you’re adding coconut oil to your diet for its antioxidants and anti-microbial benefits. Because it retains more natural constituents than refined coconut oil, you’ll get the maximum benefits.†

As the name suggests, cold-pressed coconut oil is made without any heat. The coconut meat is scooped out and pressed so that you’re left with pure coconut oil. On the other hand, refined coconut oil is made from dried coconut meat. The coconut meat is typically bleached and deodorized and heated in a hydraulic press before undergoing further heat and filtering. As with all food processing, the addition of heat reduces the antioxidant content of refined coconut oil. Therefore, cold-pressed oil can be expected to have higher levels of antioxidants than its refined counterpart.†

The second major benefit of cold-pressed coconut oil is the flavor. Unrefined coconut oil retains its natural, pure coconut taste. This is especially ideal if you’re using coconut oil for baking. Choosing cold-pressed coconut oil for baking recipes results in baked goods that possess the nutty and delicate flavor that coconut is known for. Because refined coconut oil undergoes extensive processing, it doesn’t retain a coconut flavor. You can expect refined coconut oil to have a very neutral flavor where you’re unable to detect much, if any, hint of coconut.†
