Like all foods and most cosmetic ingredients, there are differences between coconut oils.
RBD coconut oil is refined, bleached and deodorized. Refined means more processed: coconuts are left out in the sun or put in ovens to dry, then sent to a refinery for oil extraction with heat and/or chemicals. Bleaching: think white rice, white sugar and white pasta. Deodorizing creates a tasteless oil, popular for dishes where the flavor of purer, less processed coconut oils may be less preferable.
