Yes, yes, we know, coconut oil is all the rage these days. And yes, it’s true this healthy fat is great for cooking, but why?
Because of its high saturated fat content because it’s slow to oxidize, resistant to high heats and can last up to two years without spoiling, that’s why. It’s an excellent choice for cooking as it doesn’t go rancid at high temps whereas other oils will. Coconut oil is also a medium chain tryglyceride. Studies have shown that MCTs increase calorie burning and fat oxidization as well as suppress appetite.
But all coconuts oils are not created equal. You need to make sure you buy the right kind! Make sure you look for labels that contain Organic, Extra Virgin, and Cold Pressed.
Many organic coconut oil brands taste bland or even sour, some may even have a strong, bitter flavor. I discovered a fantastic organic virgin coconut oil that actually tastes and smells like… you guessed it, COCONUT. In a solid state, it is white in color– not cream colored or grey like most brands that have been overly processed.
