Are you at increased risk of heart problems, high cholesterol or depression? If you’re using a conventional cooking oil high in trans-fats, you could well be! A direct result of the hydrogenation process used for producing commercial cooking oils and margarines, trans-fatty acids are especially difficult for the body to break down, leading to calcified deposits in the arteries over time. Worse still, recent research suggests trans-fats are also a mood inhibitor, which could go some way to explaining why fried food no longer gives you the feel-good factor!
Coconut oil has long been regarded one of the best alternatives for conventional home cooking oils due to its high concentration of saturated fats. This makes it significantly more resistant to oxidization than other oils (when cooking at high heat) – perfect for Asian and Indian cuisines which call for a great deal of frying! Cold-pressed and USDA Certified, our Organic Extra Virgin Fiji Raw Coconut Oil is pure, tasty, and naturally high in anti-oxidants, making it a healthy, yet delicious alternative to olive oil.
There are two types of coconut oil: extra virgin, and refined. But, which is right for you? Quite simply, it comes down to whether or not you want to integrate the flavor of coconut in your cooking. Refined oil can be useful, however, it lacks the sweet, tropical flavor that makes extra virgin so popular. From cookies and tray bakes, to stir fry and Onigiri; discover the tasty benefits of nature’s ‘wonder oil’ for yourself!
