Moreover, does coconut oil have flavor?
A.: Coconut oil has a very neutral flavor when tasted on its own or when used in cooking. It has no traces of coconut flavor. You are correct that it doesn't come cheap. It has about the lowest smoke point of all vegetable cooking oils, so it's not good for frying or sauteing over high heat, as it will start to burn.
Similarly, why does my coconut oil have no smell? Some virgin coconut oils have a very strong flavor or smell. This usually indicates a poor quality oil because the smell and taste comes mainly from contaminates and not coconut. Beware of oils that do not taste and smell like fresh coconut. They should have a very mild coconut aroma and flavor.
Moreover, what is the difference between refined and unrefined coconut oil?
At the store you're faced with a choice: refined or unrefined coconut oil. But what's the difference? Simply put, refined coconut oil is more processed, resulting in a milder-tasting oil, while unrefined coconut oil endures less processing and has a lower smoke point and deeper coconut flavor.
Are all coconut oils the same?
Most grocery stores carry coconut oil in both solid and liquid states—and even though they're both labeled as coconut oil, they're not exactly the same thing. All saturated fats (butter, lard, coconut oil) should be solid at room temperature.
