Default Any feedback about this CO?

I realized I'm running low on coconut oil and I usually get a gallon at a time since I only make soap for myself and family/friends. I saw this for a decent price (https://www.amazon.com/Nutiva-Organi...nut%2Boil&th=1) and wondered if anyone here thinks it's a good buy.

Thanks!

Is that price right? Nutiva is usually extremely expensive - so grab it! It's the brand I often buy to cook with and is usually pearly white and simply gorgeous.

ETA: I get food grade but cheap looking co from Big Lots for 12 bucks a gallon. There's nothing wrong with it but I am disappointed with its yellow tinged color. A gallon of Nutiva
at Costco in S CA. was about 42 dollars last time I DIDN'T buy it.

Price is correct. Not sure why it's lower than this one (https://www.amazon.com/Nutiva-Refine...on+coconut+oil) which is closer to what you quoted.

If you are stocking up. Lasts me just over a year.

Thanks for that link. If I made lots of soap I'd definitely jump on that as the price is better than Amazon. However, I am actually just about to run out of my one gallon Snappy and was looking to try something different. I make about 10 - 12 batches per year and I use less CO in my recipe than what is commonly used so one gallon is perfect for me.

Here, the local Winco has the Better Body CO at $9.98(usually $11 something) 56 oz /1.75qt /1.6L
The Big Lots Butcher Boy CO 60 oz container $7.50 They are the exact same container. The fill line on the Butcher Boy is nearly to the top and the Better Body is just below the neck of the jar. Both are non GMO certified.

My granddaughter has a peanut allergy, the Nutiva oil says it's bottled in a facility that also bottles peanut oil, anyone know if any peanut cross contamination would survive the soaping process?

This is just my opinion, FWIW, but any time I see a price on Amazon that seems too good to be true, I take a long, hard look at the seller, assuming it is not Amazon or the original manufacturer.

I believe any potential peanut proteins that could have contaminated the product would survive saponification.
