Price amazing but taste lacking!
on 13 July 2014
The familiar coconut aroma and taste that's present in the Tiana EVCO appears to be absent in the 2 jars of Ma Devlins EVCO that I've consumed. The lack of coconut flavour in Ma Devlins EVCO can be a benefit when cooking foods such as scrambled eggs were coconut flavour may not be desirable. I contacted Ma Devlins via there website to ask the reason for the lack of coconut flavour but I've received no response, though may spam filter may be the reason for that. The PRICE of this product is INCREDIBLE. If you go through as much coconut oil as I do, paying 25 to 50% less (when compared to the other well know EVCO brands) is hard to resist.
The text below is a excerpt from a email I received from a Ma Devlins representative. Hopefully it will help someone with this issue!
We have tested oils from different parts of the world and this can also have an effect on the aroma, but in terms of testing and making sure the correct fatty acids are present there is no loss, which is the most beneficial part of the oil.
I do understand people may like a stronger aroma, which we are looking at Thailand for this but this is still in development, once this is complete we will be bringing this online, whilst other valued buyers dislike the strong aroma, so we settled with Sri Lanka as the aroma was not over powering and no loss in the fatty acids as I mentioned earlier.
