I’ve talked before about how much we use coconut oil and shared my list of 101 uses. We use coconut oil in everything from deodorant to toothpaste to cooking. I even use it in my coffee…
I often get asked and wanted to share my favorite brand of coconut oil: Tropical Traditions Gold Label. (check out the bottom of this post for a free coconut oil gift)
Tropical Traditions offers several different types of coconut oil. I like the taste of coconut so we use the gold label for everything, but their chart shows the difference in the various types:
Some of the reasons we’ve decided to use Tropical Traditions coconut oil:
- All of their coconut oils are organic and non-GMO
- All are made without the use of chemicals (unlike vegetable oils)
- Coconut oils are not hydrogenated and don’t contain trans fats
- Coconut oil contains high levels of Medium Chain Tryglicerides and Lauric Acid- good fats that support health
- Gold Level is hand made and has high levels of antioxidants
- All TT coconut oils are packaged in glass instead of plastic to preserve the quality of the coconut oil and keep any plastics from leaching in to the oils
We’ve completely removed any vegetable oils from our house and only use coconut oil. I love that my kids are getting beneficial fats in everything that I cook and it works great in homemade lotions and body products.
Their expeller pressed coconut oil doesn’t have the taste of coconut so it is a good option for those who don’t like the taste.
Tropical Traditions has offered to give you all a free copy of their Virgin Coconut Oil Book if you decide to buy something from their site (minimum purchase $16, first time order only). Just use this link and you will get the book free if you purchase at least $16 on your first order. You get the book free and I get coupons towards their products (which are a tremendous help to our family). Note: If you decide to purchase anything from Tropical Traditions through my link, I do receive coupons that can be used toward Tropical Traditions products and your price is the same. If you do, thanks so much for helping support my blog!

I’ve been changing my and my family’s lifestyle significantly and this is one of the areas I’d like to change, but am scared about which brand to try first. So I thought this would be a great way to try a product and hopfully be a customer for life!
I love to cook with coconut oil, although I haven’t tried the gold label yet, does it taste like coconut? I subscribe to the TT newsletter.
I love using coconut oil for cooking and making candy. Yum!!

I like that it is solid at room temp so that it has great binding properties in recipes.
I eat coconut oil to keep my blood sugar from raising while eating carbs.
Quick question, what bulk would you recommend for coconut oil? Do you buy it by the gallon? Thanks for the info!
We buy it by the gallon now, but I’m considering starting to buy in 5 gallon bulk as much as we use 🙂
I’m new to cocount oil, and have yet to try it, but I’m doing your 40-day challenge and would love to try this!
I get Tropical Traditions newsletter but have yet to place my first order! I just love the smell of coconut oil and would like to try coconut cream.
I love the taste of coconut oil but it’s so expensive so I don’t buy it often. Love your blog!
I have been using coconut oil for a while now and I love the flavor it adds, great in baking or more savory stuff like a stirfry. Does TT come in a glass jar? I have been using Nutiva which is ok but I wish it didn’t come in plastic.
It does come in glass jar. I joke you managed to get yourself some and hope your loving it.
I just got some myself but unfortunately living in UK I pay double for the delivery costs :/
I know there is other ones here that I can opt to instead maybe go for raw organic extra Virginia of there is such one over here from the list I have seen advertised in UK as basic one 😉 use this one as treats 😉
In the UK Coconut Oil can be purchased from Holland & Barrett at a reasonabl price. I live in the UK and that is where I go for mine,
