Ammi Samayal Coconut oil does not contain Sulphur, Chemicals and Harmful Preservatives according to its Food label. Coconut oil is safe for deep frying due to its high smoking point. However, this oil is unrefined and therefore has a lower smoking point due to coconut pulp residue in the oil. Unrefined oils should not be used for high heat cooking.
The product packaging does not mention the use of anti oxidants like TBHQ. We are assuming that they do not use it.
