 Why doesn't 16 ounces of
coconut  oil equal 16 ounces?



We would like to provide the following brief primer on weights and measures in order to eliminate confusion and to help people compare quantities and prices of coconut oil offered by various suppliers. In everyday trade (at the grocery for example) we see a wide variety of items which are sold based on two different systems of measurement. Some items are sold by weight and some by volume. Produce, for example, is sold by weight. One pound is equal to 16 ounces. Liquid products are typically sold by volume which is measured in pints, quarts, gallons, etc. This volume measurement is also given in fluid ounces. A fluid ounce may be equal to an ounce by weight (avoirdupois) or it may not, depending on the density of the substance being measured. The density of water is taken as the standard and is equal to 1. One cup of water would equal 8 fluid ounces and would also weigh 8 ounces. Eight fluid ounces of other substances (depending on whether they are more or less dense than water) would weigh more or less than 8 ounces. A cup of rice crispies would have a volume of 8 fluid ounces but would weigh much less than 8 ounces since the rice crispies are much lighter than water.

Coconut oil is lighter than water. According to Hawley's Condensed Chemical Dictionary the density of coconut oil is 0.92, so a cup of coconut oil (8 fluid ounces) actually weighs only 7.36 ounces (8 X 0.92 =7.36). It is for that reason that we have chosen to package Coconut Oil Supreme™ on the basis of weight rather than volume and the reason that it is packaged in a 1/2 liter bottle. A pint bottle (16 fluid ounces) would not hold a full pound of coconut oil. We have listed some equivalent measures of coconut oil below for your reference.

1 pint (16 fl. oz.) = 14.72 ounces = .92 pounds by weight

1 quart (32 fl. oz.) = 29.44 ounces = 1.84 pounds by weight

1/2 gallon (64 fl. oz.) = 58.88 ounces = 3.68 pounds by weight

1 gallon (128 fl. oz.) = 117.76 ounces = 7.36 pounds by weight

1 Tablespoon of coconut oil = 13.05 grams

1 pint (16 fl. oz.) = 32 tablespoons

1 pound (16 oz. by weight) = 34.79 tablespoons

I'm back to buying the best! I tried another brand coconut oil brand claiming to be "virgin" and highest quality - it was TERRIBLE & tasted like soap!! I forced myself to choke down 16oz before relegating the rest to cooking oil status. Just *thinking* about making my morning "butter coffee" with your sweet coconut oil supreme again makes me feel happy! Though I thought to save $, it ended up being a costly mistake & hard-to-swallow lesson! C.B.

Bought several coconut oils from health food stores. Although they were organic, the smell and taste were awful and had to throw them out. When I saw the sample size of coconut supreme I thought it was perfect to try first before spending money on a product I wasn't sure of. (customer who first bought sample.) M.S.

I am a nurse, I had a patient a few nights ago who let me use some of her coconut oil supreme after I commented on how nice her lotion smelled. She wanted me to get an extra medication cup and fill it with a few scoops to take home and try. I love how it moisturizes my over dry over washed nursing hands. I am going to try it in my dog's food also, he is always itchy. I will let you know! I am also purchasing a jar for my mother who has a lot of allergies to products. Thanks!! A.D.

My husband and I love this product! We've tried other coconut oils and none of them match the quality and taste. We also love that it is available in such a large quantity! S.S.

I am ordering these two samples and having them sent to one of my dearest friends because I want her to try these two products. I have become a walking 'advertisement' for Coconut Oil Supreme!! ... I am a repeat customer because I love, love, love your products! D. W.

This is my second order. Yours is the first Coconut Oil I have tried, but I can't imagine any other company's product being better. Your Cococnut Oil Supreme has such a delicate flavor. I use it now also as a skin moisturizer and have fallen in love with it's ultra-light fragrance. Wish I had discovered your company sooner! Linda D.

You offer the best selection with the highest quality. I love this company ...I've been a long time customer and absolutely love your products. I highly recommend to anyone who asks. You're the best out there. For me quality far exceeds the cost! S.N.

You carry the absolute best coconut based products available, and your coconut oil is head and shoulders better than any other oil available. S.J.

Thanks for your good work in making this good oil available online... I luv the coconut oil from your store -- its clarity and and smooth consistency (almost like water), fresh natural taste and mild fragrance, and quality is the best one I've found... it's the best of the best!! A regular / longtime customer now, Sharon S.

Just wanted to say I love your coconut oil. I have been trying several brands and I bought a small quantity from each. I noticed how crystal clear your oil is when it's in its melted state. The other oils were yellow, cloudy or just disgusting looking. Thanks for a great product and will be ordering again soon. M.S.

You have the most delicious tasting coconut oil I have ever tasted. I tried 5 different brands. You're the best!

Fabulous product - much better flavor than other oil available.

Now I know what real coconut oil should taste like.

Thank you for being a great source for the best oil on earth!

Thank you for your great product and wonderful service.

Tried them all and yours is the best.
