    Unfortunately dr noyz, I myself have been experiencing some difficulty in obtaining coconut oil. I actually called the national coconut growers association here in Trinidad and was told that there was a shortage of copra. What I had to revert to was to make it myself, as in the post, in the mean time, or use sparingly olive oil, the next best. It is usually sold in supermarkets when I can get my hands on it. Thank you for your comment, greatly appreciated.

    I know there is quite a lots of coconut oil in Trinidad , what about if there is a new brand which is Tasteless and not with the Coconut aroma. ie you can cook any Veg or meat , the Food do not taste or smell coconut !

      Recently, I bought one of which you speak because there were none of the usual brands on the shelf. For the record, I love the smell.

    I have a hard time finding affordable and healthy (processed properly) coconut oil here in the US. I order mine online and have it shipped from one of the 2 companies I have found that do it right, called Tropical Traditions or Wilderness family.

    It is my preferred oil for the same reasons you’ve given. The only problem is that it is no longer readily available at the supermarkets. I buy it whenever I see it on the shelves. Thanks for the recipe!

      Hi Lisa,

      I make coconut oil (among other coconut products) and will be happy to give you a free sample of the oil. It carries a fresh light “coconutty” scent and is not heat treated which explains its transparent colour (100% cold processed). The coconut is one of my favourite foods; I have done some research into its health benefits and recommend 100% cold processed coconut oil for everyone (even my pets love it). I am currently marketing it to everyone I know and meet and hope to place this product on our grocer’s shelves to reintroduce and promote the use of healthy and functional foods among our Trini. people. So feel free to give me a call (1868-354-7478) if you wish to try it. I absolutely recommend it for cooking, hair-skin-scalp moisturizing. Coconut oil is very absorbent and non-greasy; because of its minute chemical composition it is one of the very few oils readily absorbed by the skin.

        Jamilah,
        Thank you for your comment. I have an idea, would you like to tell us more about your product in the October’s Issue of Compere magazine. We would love to interview you, introduce your product to our readers with pictures of it as well. What do you think?
