Coconut Oil--it's melted ... is it still good?

I purchased Spectrum Organic Coconut Oil from Walmart. We recently had a heat wave and the oil melted. On the label it said that no refrigeration is necessary so I just keep it on the counter near my coffee pot. Now, it doesn't smell or taste like coconut like before. Does this mean it went bad?

CO will be liquid when the temps are above 75 degrees. It is completely ok. In my house because of AC, it is almost always solid!!

Oh and HELLO to another BURGH'er!!!!!

Perfectly fine!! It melts when it gets hot enough, but doesn't degrade when it does. It is a very stable oil, and why it is so recommended. In my house I melt it to eat it, it gets solid, I melt it, eat it, gets solid. I melt it over and over, all the time! Still good!!! I love coconut oil

in the tropical countries that use coconut oil the most, probably people don't even know it gets solid at cool temps! for them it's always a liquid oil. if it had started being used in the US first, we probably would have called it something other than "oil" since it's usually solid here. but as they said in other posts, liquid is fine, it didn't do anything to your CO.

I always thought it would make some sort of crude thermometer because you can tell the temperature of the room (roughly) by whether it's liquid or solid. We don't heat our house much in the winter so it's solid all winter long and much of the summer because we only have occasional heat waves and then a nice, moderate temperature the rest of the time with cool evenings and mornings.

I live in South Florida and I do not use air conditioning. My coconut oil is liquid most of the year. It's fine that way.

Holy cow, I live in Central Florida and I have my air conditioner on all year long!!!

When I take my coconut oil out of the cabinet, most of it is usually solid but the center is a liquid.
