Crede Oils Organic Virgin Coconut Oil 250ml
Virgin coconut oil is pressed from the fresh meat of raw coconuts. It is cold-pressed and filtered and retains the classic coconut smell as well as many micronutrients in the oil.
Most research into the health benefits of coconut oil is based on virgin coconut oil. Coconut oil is rich in saturated fatty acids, especially lauric acid and myristic acid. These fatty acids are so-called medium-chain triglycerides because they are shorter molecules than the saturated fats commonly found in vegetable oils. This also explains why coconut oil has a far better health profile than its high content of saturated fats would suggest.
Coconut oil is primarily a great cooking oil because of its stability at high temperatures. When oils are heated, they begin processes of oxidation and polymerisation that can lead to harmful by-products such as aldehydes. The advantage of coconut oil is that it consists mostly of healthy saturated fats, which are more stable at high temperatures than mono- and poly-unsaturated fats. This makes frying with coconut oil a safer option.
