Okies I have read through this thread and I am left with thinking the Escentials is the cheapest option that still has a good taste just isn't certified food grade?  Otherwise I may as well keep getting it from the local place as the Tropical one will cost about $45 for 940ml (if I'm reading correctly) and I paid $32 for 750ml the last time I bought coconut oil.

Just email Max and ask if it's food grade.
escentials@optusnet.com.au

He's my main supplier and is excellent.
A great cook is one who can rustle up a fabulous family meal with some freezer burnt chops, wilted carrots, sprouting potatoes and cabbage that's gone brown on the cut edges.

Very interesting reading. Will be heading to the local Asian food market tomorrow to get myself some coconut oil. The Chocolate Alternative from the Vegetarian Recipe book uses coconut oil as does another recipe I have seen in the last couple of days but can't quite remember what it is at the moment.

I've received an answer from Max at Escentials about whether his coconut oil is virgin food grade and here is his answer:

"yes indeed it is; we eat a lot of it. but i should add that we are not registered food processors.
Kind Rgds
Max"

So, yes, it's food grade, virgin coconut oil, but he isn't a registered seller. Who cares? If he was, he'd have to charge more, that's all!

Yup that's what I got and true lol

Do you get any other oils from him?

Do you know where they're based?  I saw they mentioned couriers for SE Qld so I'm not sure if they say that because they're based there or?? lol 

I'm looking at getting some bottles to put my vanilla essence in too lol

Yes, Max has a lot of different oils there, Macadamia, Rosehip, Evening Primrose etc.
He's based in Queensland and is my favourite supplier.

The coconut oil title of the post caught my eye, yum!

I buy mine on ebay Aus, it is Banaban extra virgin coconut oil, organic. It tastes great and I use it in lots of things. It was not 'cheap'  but is a price I can stomach and you can buy in bulk AND it comes right to your door! What's not to love  ;D
