Absolute Organic Coconut oil is extracted from the kernel or meat of matured coconut harvested from organically grown coconut palms (Cocos nucifera).
It has various applications in food, medicine, and industry. The unrefined oil retains the natural aroma and flavour of coconut. Coconut supplies a lot of nutrients important for good health, fighting various diseases and supporting metabolism.
Coconut oil does not raise cholesterol levels but is quickly metabolised into energy. It is high in Lauric acid. Once mistakenly believed to be unhealthy because of its high saturated fat content, it is now known that the fat in coconut oil is short chain. It has no cholesterol and no dangerous trans-fats as found in other oils. Coconut fats are processed directly in the liver without putting strain on the digestive system and are highly recommended for those who have difficulty digesting fats.
Coconut oil is very heat stable so it makes an excellent cooking and frying oil. It has a smoke point of about 360°F (180°C). Coconut oil is also an excellent oil to use in stir frys. Since it is a stable cooking oil, you can simply replace unhealthy oils in the diet with it. Being solid most of the time at room temperature, it can be a butter or margarine substitute for spreads or for baking. Any recipe calling for butter, margarine, or any other oil can be substituted with Coconut Oil.
Because of its stability it is slow to oxidize and thus resistant to rancidity, lasting up to two years.
