The ‘tasty’ story of coconut oil is that, it is GREAT for cooking!
Authentic flavours: The mild flavour in Coconut oil enhances the taste of the food. It can be used in different kinds of cooking - from using it in salads and popcorns to deep frying chicken and chips! It is a great replacement for butter.
Withstands High Temperatures: Coconut oil contains mostly saturated fats and is able to withstand heat/ high temperatures, making it the best, for cooking, especially Indian cooking. Heating can destroy the beneficial properties of most oils - this however, does not happen with coconut oil.
Coconut oil contains Medium Chain Triglycerides which has multiple benefits:
Laurics is the most prominent medium chain fatty acid found in coconut oil.
Mother’s milk and Coconut oil have Laurics in them and owe their magnificent antimicrobial qualities to a group of saturated fatty acids called Medium Chain Fatty Acids (MCFA). Mother’s Milk, nature’s perfect food, provides all the nutrients a baby requires within the first year or so of life - so does coconut oil!
This amazing property of coconut oil increases immunity - keeping one safe from various diseases including common cold and flu!
