BANABAN Extra Virgin Coconut Oil®
will appear as a solid white butter type consistency during colder months
  BANABAN Extra Virgin Coconut Oil®
will appear as a clear slightly golden liquid oil during warmer months.


The difference between BANABAN Extra Virgin Coconut Oil® and (Virgin) Coconut Butter is the fact that all premium quality Virgin Coconut Oil will solidify when the temperature drops below 65 degrees (F), 18 degrees (C) giving the oil a butter like quality. In fact many Virgin Coconut Oil customers store their oil in the refrigerator so they can use it as a healthy substitute for butter or margarine spreads.

If the Virgin Coconut Oil is exposed to temperatures above 65 degrees(F), 18 degrees(C) for any length of time, the oil will melt back to its liquid form. While some first time customers are not aware of this natural process, regular customers know this is a sure sign of the purity and quality of the Virgin Coconut Oil. Once any type of additives is added to the oil and its purity is compromised the oil takes much longer to solidify.

Coconut Oil: Liquid or Solid?

Dr. Bruce Fife explains coconut oil's process of going in between being a liquid and solid and how it doesn't affect the oil.

It’s just like water being frozen to ice and water. You can go back and forth but there’s chemically and nutritionally no difference in the water. The same way with the coconut oil, it will continually go to solid to liquid depending on the temperature in your area and there’s no difference in its nutritional or its health value.
