Unlike vegetable oils, Coconut oil is one of the safest and healthiest cooking oils. It is heat-stable and does not create toxic trans-fats when heated. Unlike other saturated fats, it doesn’t raise cholesterol levels
This Coconut Oil has been gently warmed to deodorise, removing the coconut taste and aroma. Used straight from the fridge, it’s excellent for spreading on bread, crackers, etc.
Coconut Butter is rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), an excellent source of energy, easily digested and useful as part of a weight management programme.
MCTs are made of lauric, caprylic, capric and caproic acids. Coconut Butter contains 41-56% lauric acid, known also to possess antimicrobial properties, and 3-15% caprylic acid, known also to contain anti-fungal properties. Coconut Butter also contains myristic acid, used in metabolism for the stabilisation of cell protein. It also contains the Omega 6 essential fatty acid linoleic acid and the Omega 9 fatty acid oleic acid.
Unlike saturated fats, like butter, coconut oil doesn`t raise cholesterol levels. In fact, Polynesians who use coconut oil daily are known to have low cholesterol levels.
