Liquid Coconut Oil: A new product that appeared in stores as an edible oil in 2013 was “liquid coconut oil” that is promoted as “coconut oil that stays liquid even in your refrigerator”. It is also referred to as “MCT oil“. It is “fractionated coconut oil” that has had lauric acid removed.  It has typically been used in the past in skin care products, and more recently as a dietary supplement. It is a refined product that is now marketed as an edible oil.

Extra Virgin Coconut Oil: There is no difference between “virgin” and “extra virgin” like in the olive oil industry.
