Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil Superfood – 15 oz (444 mL)
Nutiva Organic Refined Coconut Oil is a superfood and an excellent all-purpose oil great for sauteing, baking, and body care. Coconut is one of the world’s most nourishing superfoods. Unlike other companies that use chemicals, Nutiva Refined Coconut Oil is made though a steam refining process. Absolutely no chemicals are used! The benefit of refined coconut oil is that it has a higher smoke point than virgin coconut oil. You can cook with it at up to 400°F (versus 350°F for virgin coconut oil). It also has a neutral scent and flavor (versus virgin coconut oil which has a distinct coconut smell and flavor). This makes it ideal for recipes where a coconut flavor is not desired. Refined Coconut Oil and Virgin Coconut Oil have the same benefits of 63% Medium Chain Triglycerides and 50% Lauric Acid.

Social and environmental responsibility is a core part of Nutiva’s culture and business.
From sourcing organic products, to obtaining fair trade certification, to greening our facilities and operations, to funding tree planting at schools in our local community, we are constantly seeking ways to better protect our environment and ensure a better quality of life for employees, customers, and the communities we serve.
Nutiva’s commitment to sustainability
While many brands use harsh chemicals and non-organic coconuts to create MCT oil, we’ve crafted a patented USDA Certified Organic process to produce the world’s first certified organic MCT Oil. We only offer the highest quality organic and non-GMO products to our customers, and are committed to supporting our coconut suppliers in following sustainable farming practices. Upon harvest, the creamy white meat of the coconut is scooped from the shell by hand, then cold-pressed to create the Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil. To create Nutiva Organic MCT Oil, we slowly chill the virgin coconut oil to separate the solid fats, leaving MCT Oil.
To advance our mission to revolutionize the way the world eats, Nutiva launched the City Fruit Tree Initiative 5 years ago with nonprofit Common Vision. Since then the Nutiva Foundation has donated an orchard to every public elementary, middle, and high school (31 total) in our local community of Richmond, California.
Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, our Red Palm Oil is certified Organic, Fair Trade, RSPO, and Non-GMO. We partner with Natural Habitats to ensure that no deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process. Fair trade premiums serve the farming communities. Projects have included building a small health clinic, supporting a school, and providing sports uniforms for local youth. We support Palm Done Right, an international campaign to raise consumer awareness about palm grown for good.
We support biodiversity, permaculture, seed diversity, composting, native planting, integrated pest management, conservation, small-scale organic farming, and the cessation of pesticide and herbicide use.
fighting for your right
We support GMO labeling and awareness, industrial hemp farming, fair trade, food justice, food sovereignty, reduction of food waste, and environmental leadership.
Maintaining a zero waste headquarters and warehouse is a priority, and we’re committed to continuous improvement. Through our zero waste program, 95% of waste materials or 770 MT were diverted from the landfill in 2015 and either reused (33%) or recycled (62%).
As part of our commitment to fight climate change, we initiated a new carbon offset program in 2015. Working with Pur Projet, we offset 2015 emissions from our chia farming and production (473 MT CO2e).
