Cocavo - Chilli and Lime product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsA combination of unrefined extra virgin coconut oil and extra virgin avocado oil, Cocavo has less saturated fat than regular coconut oil. In addition to being high in lauric acid, Cocavo also offers the added health benefits of avocado oil which includes high levels of mono-unsaturated fat, vitamin E and plant sterols. Cocavo has a very high smoke point, which makes it ideal for cooking and enhancing flavors.

Cocavo is carefully infused with selected chilli and lime oils giving you the perfect blend. Cocavo enhances and brings out the flavors in dishes from seafood to stir-fry. It is ideal for vegans, vegetarians and non-vegetarians.

I had already tried the original Cocavo and if you read my previous review, you will see that it does have positive aspects, healthy oils, less saturated fat and a reasonable size tub for the price that you pay. I wasn't particularly impressed with the original but I figured I would go into this one with an open mind, particularly with the mild flavouring, it might be one that I would enjoy more.

I won't go through all the problems in detail that I had with the other one but suffice to say I had the same issues here, difficult to judge how much to use, cools to a solid in the pan, over utensils etc. Unfortunately I found a couple of additional things that were frustrating for me. My partner and I like to be able to rub oil over our steaks before cooking them, it gives them a nicer flavour and they cook better. With this oil being a solid, I couldn't do the same thing. I tried melting it and then rubbing the melted oil over the meat but once the oil was cooled, it just turned solid again over the meat and instead felt greasy.

When we cooked we didn't use any other seasonings as we wanted to see how much of the chilli and lime came through. We tried it with pork, venison and beef. The flavour was best noticed on the beef, very mild but nice. My partner however, only really noticed the mild coconut flavour each time.

The package advises that once opened, the oil should be used in 3 months. With a flavoured oil like this, we wouldn't use it as often so there is no way we would go through the whole pack in 3 months, making it a waste of money for us unfortunately. I really wanted to like these oils but unfortunately I really didn't, it won't be one that we will be adding to the shopping I'm sorry.
