Coconut Oil, Extra Virgin or Deodorized
Cocos nucifera Coconut oil which is refined and deodorized has a longer shelf life and is more hygienic than crude coconut oil, but has lower proteins and minerals content. Extra virgin coconut oil has a higher quality compared to the deodorized type, as it starts with fresh coconut and not dried coconut removed from the coconut shell (also known as copra). Coconut oil is a common ingredient in many Asian curries. Organic certified.
