The difference between the Coconut Butter and the Coconut Oil is actually the fiber content.
Coconut Butter is the pureed meat of mature coconuts. It is roughly 60% oil, but it also had the fiber from the meat in it. It is solid at room temperature, a creamy white/beige color and when warmed up is thick and creamy and smooth.
Coconut Oil on the other hand has no fiber. The oil has been separated from the meat of the coconut. It is solid at room temperature and translucent. If you see it solid it will look like it has florets or snowflakes in it. When warmed up is becomes liquid and completely clear. It can be used for higher temperature cooking such as sautéing, or frying.
Your Coconut Butter is perfectly fine to eat. It may have just been subjected to a temperature change. This is not mold....I repeat, this is NOT mold.
Coconuts are roughly 60% oil, and that oil likes to separate from the fiber in the Coconut Butter. You will see a layer of translucent oil at the top that looks like snowflakes or florets. You may also see spots of it around the rest of the jar. This is perfectly normal. All you need to do is gently warm the jar (set the jar in the sun or in warm water) and stir the oil back into the butter.
Shelf life of our delicious nut & seed butters is 14-16 months from date of manufacture.
There is really no need to refrigerate. Our butters are shelf stable. In fact if you chill them too much they become hard to use as they will not spread easily.
Artisana Organic Raw Coconut Butter is made from the meat of mature coconuts. We do not add any fillers or preservatives to our butters.
We use hulled sesame seeds to make our Tahini.
There are a few reasons we blend Cashews into these three highly acclaimed organic, raw nut butters. Cashews make the Walnut and Pecan butters more creamy and spreadable. Cashews also act as a natural sweetener to temper the natural bitterness of the Walnut and Pecan skins (which we leave in for the health benefit).
We work with small to medium sized cooperative farms in Southeast Asia.

The short answer is no. Our raw nuts are not soaked prior to crafting them into our tasty, healthy, organic, raw nut butters. Soaking the nuts and seeds adds a lot of water (even after dehydrating) and definitely adds bacteria & moisture - reducing shelf life to just a few days.

Great Question... You can spread on bread or toast instead of using peanut butter. But most of our customers enjoy them in a whole bunch of ways that can really improve the taste, texture and nutrition of many other foods.
