Spectrum Coconut Oil, Kosher for Passover
After years of horrid baking w/passover margarine, I followed up on a rumor I heard that Extra virgin coconut oil was KFp without special certification. I've posted the email conversation I had with the OU on my blog confirming that Spectrum Unrefined is KFP with a regular OU.
During Pesach (as well as during the year), I bake with Hollywood Safflower oil. The bottle sold during the year has the regular hechsher (either OK, OU, or Chof K- don't remember which one- but it's meanstream. In the springtime, they add the P. I buy it in the supermarket.
I wonder which other oils could be available kosher for passover? Wouldn't it be nice to try macadamia oil, almond oil, palm fruit oil.... I think palm fruit oil would not even be that expensive and they say much healthier than palm kernel oil.
By the way, a rabbi who supervises agave nectar told me that the only problem for Passover would be some of the enzymes used in extraction and by the letter of the law that would not render the final product forbidden for Passover
