Subject:  refined coconut oil
Message:  I that extra virgin unrefined coconut oil is okay without a hechsher; is refined coconut oil allowed as well? I am referring to the Tropical Traditions brand. (It is called pure coconut oil)
This is different than most refined coconut oils in that there is no chemical processing. The website reads: "The coconut oil is produced by the expeller-pressed method using a mechanical extraction process. No solvent extracts such as hexane are used in the refining process."

It is steam deodorized.

Are there any questions I should ask the company about the way it is processed?
Reply:  it is fine
