Food For Thought: A Few Health Benefits Of Coconut Oil

health benefits of coconut oil | Halal Home Cooking

Salam Alaikum & Welcome to another post here on At Home With Asmaa,

After my Coconut Oil Oat Cookies, i thought i would research and share more about the oil that has been named by some as "the healthiest oil in the world".

So what makes coconut oil different? well, Coconut oil is a saturated fat predominantly made up of medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA) as oppose to LCFA or long chain fatty acids found in most foods.

MCFA's have no negative affect on cholesterol and even lower the risk of heart disease and atherosclerosis.

Coconut Oil is easily digested in the body resulting in an increase in metabolic rate, more heat production as well as increased circulation. All good in aiding weight loss.

To find out more about these health benefits and others, including how coconut oil is good for both skin and hair, pop on over to http://www.naturalnews.com/036156_Coconut_oil_superfood_healing.html

Cooking with Coconut Oil

Coconut oil is heat stable, making it suitable for cooking at high temperatures, It is slow to oxidize, resists rancidity and has a shelf life of approximately two years or more; virgin coco creme / virgin coconut oil created through a wet-milling process has an indefinite shelf life.

So the next time you are making a curry why not try coconut oil as a base to fry your onions, garlic and spices?
