Have just bought some coconut oil....

antoniab, Jun 21, 1:55am
from BinInn, an Indian brand and just tryed some in a coffee. Not entirely sure what its supposed to taste like but its very strong, and not like a coconut milk or bounty bar taste lol could it be rancid? Sorry just not sure what its supposed to taste like?

As we have pointed out in the coconut thread repeatedly you get what you pay for. Bin Inn wouldn't be a place to buy unrefined virgin Thai or Phillipine virgin coconut oil - simply because it would be too expensive.
Check out the coconut oil thread for good sources.

So what should it taste like?

Mellow coconut flavor, some find it sweet (normally those of us who dont eat sugar products), not bitter, does not leave a scratchy feeling in the back of the throat, is smooth in texture, is white in colour while solid has a beautiful tropical coconut smell.

All of which u wont find for under $15-20 per 500mls

On our picky list we have

Top of the picks out of all brands in NZ

Zenian - Philippine or Thai (I prefer phili)
And John Appletons Virgin CO

Both types can be found by googling NZ

maxwell do you like the zenian one better?

Today i recieved my x2 $2 testers from online and you will notice a HUGE HUGE taste difference - as last week i bought some coconut oil from the 4square for $5 and it was horrible really really strong! I thru it out LOL! This real stuuf is just so smooth and light and really yum -

PS i think out of the Zenian range - Philippine & Thai are very very similar? ? ?

You ugli dizzy people need to get out into the real world a bit you are all talking about different products 1. Buko is juice of a young green coconut 2. Copra is dried coconut meat 3. Dessicated Coconut is shredded copra 4. Coconut oil is used for cooking it is heat extractedfrom copra - usually clear to yellowish 5. VCO - Virgin Coconut Oil is cold pressed from fresh coconut meat - it is very clear but goes opaque and white when chilled (NZ) normally used as a health product. 6. Coconut Cream is the white thick liquid extract from coconut meat or copra a second pressing with water gives 7. Coconut Milk - also white but thinner. Each is obviously different from the other and normally used for it's individual quality.

Mwood have u even read the thread? we actually DO know what we are talking about (and the different products)

If you dont want to read the thread and work that out. . why even bother ranting?

Just to let you know, you can buy it at BinnInn Hamilton East - the Ceres (sp) brand and a virgin brand from the Phillipines. Both just over $9 - I just got the wrong one - (the cheap version) :)
