Nutiva Organic Virgin Coconut Oil

Nutritional Benefits of Coconut Oil

Once a central part of the traditional Pacific Islander diet, coconut is fast becoming a staple in modern healthy diets. Cultures who have consumed coconut as a major dietary staple have reported excellent health.

Coconut contains lauric acid, a medium-chain fatty acid also found in human breast milk. Lauric acid makes up about 50% of coconut oil. The medium-chain fatty acids found in coconut oil are metabolized differently compared to long-chain fatty acids found in animal fats; they go straight to the liver from the digestive tract where they are used as a quick source of energy. The lauric acid in coconut milk has antimicrobial properties, as well.

How to Use Virgin Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is extremely versatile and can be used as an alternative to butter and other vegetable oils. A solid at cooler temperatures, it becomes liquid when warmed. It takes heat well and can be used for baking, sautee-ing, stir-frying or anywhere else you would use vegetable oil, shortening or butter.

Coconut oil is also commonly used as an all-natural personal/ beauty product: apply generously to skin, lips, or hair as a luscious moisturizer and conditioner.

Virgin vs Refined Coconut Oil

Nutiva virgin coconut oil has a sweet, coconut smell and flavor compared to Nutiva refined coconut oil, which has a more neutral aroma and flavor. Virgin coconut oil also has a lower smoke point compared to refined, and is best used for dishes prepared at low-heat, or where a coconut flavor and aroma is desired.
