Virgin CO is natural and tastes like coconut. Unless I'm using it with chocolate I prefer the refined. The one I get is expeller pressed and not refined with chemicals and is not hydrogenated, and has all the benefits of virgin CO. Post #4 I think.

Since I put it in my coffee or tea I prefer it not to taste like coconut. I use a small frother to emulsify it a bit so it doesn't create the pool of oil. Warning! Start with a small amount so your body can get used to it. 1/2-1 tsp a day and s l o w l y increase. I can, and do, use up to 2T now and I'm fine.

Maybe TMI... It also helps with constipation.

I also use Silk vanilla flavor coconut milk to make hot chocolate. Yummy!
