Trader Joe's Organic Coconut Oil - doesn't taste as "coconutty" as the Spectrum, but is also half the price

Cooked pineapple - if you're allergic to corn and sensitive to the ethylene gas used to ripen fruit, you may have problems with pineapple.  I avoid Dole and Del Monte and seem to do okay with organic brands.

Add to allergies:


  1. I agree with your taste comparison of the Trader Joe's brand and Spectrum brand coconut oils. I think the TJ's is smoother in texture. I am glad both work for me.

    1. Just a heads up if you're allergic/intolerant to peanuts - Spectrum's unrefined organic coconut oil now has a warning that peanut oil is also processed at the same facility. It just happened in the last few weeks.

    2. Wow! Yes, I am peanut intolerant. Thanks so much for that information.
