Coconut oil, which has been used in our country in recent years, is an oil obtained by drying the white part of the coconut fruit and squeezing it by cold pressing method. It contains a very high percentage of saturated fat. Coconut oil is healthier than other oils because it does not lose its properties when heat treated. Apart from being used as cooking oil, it can also be used for hair, skin, and dental care. When consumed, it increases the energy level in the body but is not stored. 100 grams of coconut oil is 862 calories, it can last 6 months at 24 ° C. It contains lauric acid, capric acid, and caprylic acid, in addition to linoleic acid, oleic acid, phenolic acid, myristic acid, vitamin E, vitamin K, and iron.
To take advantage of the benefits of coconut oil, it makes more sense to use cold-pressed organic, unrefined coconut oil because the organic unrefined coconut oil is derived from fresh coconut.
