I would like to know of one that has no taste, so I can use it in everything. Is one brand any better than another ??
thanks

I use this kind and love it. Put it in my coffee in the morning. Stir fry with it. Put it in my MIMs!

The cold-pressed organic virgin kinds have more of a coconut flavor. Some of the processed ones don't have any flavor at all. Its best to buy them in a glass jar rather than plastic.

Hi,
thanks so much for the info. I'm hearing more and more that it has so many health benefits. I did have some but it expired and couldn't remember anything about it. I looked up the Nutiva and remember the jar, so that's the one I used...thanks again

I get mine from tropical traditions website. Buy a jar of refined coconut oil to see how you like it. The refined coconut oil is the closest you get to being floveless and odorless.

I like it - nice for making Thai foods
I think I use Nutiva but I would say it has a coconut taste to it.

I get Spectrum Naturals Organic Coconut Oil from Walmart. It has no flavor and costs about $7 a jar.

In what section of Walmart did you find the coconut oil?

Thanks in advance.

CAN'T BREAK THE PLATEAU
Don't put so much emphasis on the weight. The mirror and how things fit is more important. Keep it up, if you're meeting your calorie goals, you will see progress soon enough.

Default to "Today" on Reports tab
In the app, whenever I go into the "Reports" tab it defaults to showing my numbers for "This Week". Can I change it so it defaults to "Today" every time? It gets annoying ...

By weight not servings...grams, oz, it does not matter... but please not by serving
Any update on this, it does seem very cumbersome to add a recipe and show it by grams or am I missing something
