Why don't more restaurants use expeller-pressed coconut oil?

by 48 · March 07, 2014 at 12:56 PM

Expeller-pressed coconut oil is healthier and, at least on the international commodities market, cheaper than canola oil. So why don't more restaurants use it as their cooking oil of choice, particularly as its reputation for being a healthy oil is becoming more widespread among a large group of folks - not just those in the paleo community?

Like canola oil it's tasteless, but it does it affect cooking in some other way? Is it hard to buy in bulk in the United States? Help me understand!

Most people are still entrenched in the "saturated fat is bad" dogma, so they wouldn´t qualify coconut oil as healthy.

Many people have tree nut allergies including to coconuts. My daughter would have to significantly reduce her eating out if more restaurants started using it.

Coconut Oil's last stand was in movie theatre popcorn in the 80's-90's Coconut Oil's Last Stand!! Don't you realize yet that Canola oil is better? lol, that's the reasoning though.

Where did you get the price? I have never seen coconut oil even approach the price of canola oil. Also which places use canola? Most use some blend of left over oils...
