Are All Liquid Coconut Oils Created Equal?  

ENT Natruals (SENSES coconut oil ) vs Today's Liquid Coconut Oil

liquid coconut oil, a "new" product did hit the shelves of many health food stores in 2013 called "Liquid Coconut Oil". It is being marketed as a coconut oil that stays liquid even in your refrigerator. This product is actually "fractionated coconut oil" where most or all of the saturated lauric acid has been removed. It has been marketed in the past as "MCT Oil", and not as coconut oil. It was more of a dietary supplement in the past. While we do not believe this product is harmful, it is a manufactured product, and actually a clever way of marketing a "left over" by-product, since lauric acid is the star fatty acid chain in coconut oil, known for its powerful antimicrobial activity.
