Coconut oil is extracted from the pulp or kernel of coconuts. Its a cholesterol-free vegan substitute for butterfat. Fat is an essential component of cheese, which is basically an emulsion of fat and water with some solids. Our purified organic coconut oil is perfect for creating nondairy cheese due to its neutral taste.
Do not make the mistake of buying virgin coconut oil for your cheese, unless you want coconut-flavored cheese.
