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.

It will be great if fatsecret records sugar total in the food journal
It can record sugar, you just need to set it up in your setting. You can also track sodium, fat, protein, carbs, net carbs, cholesterol, fiber and calories.

Is there a way to get FATSECRET to sync/be added to PACT? I'd love to use it over MFP, it's no where near as bulky.
