Not all saturated fats are created equally. There are those created “naturally” and those man made or artificially manipulated into a saturated state through a process called hydrogenation. This is a process of adding hydrogen atoms to vegetable and seed oils while heating it, which produces a rancid and thickened oil that only enhances the shelf life of the product it becomes a part of. These become trans fats and these are not healthy for you.
Most nutritional experts agree that these types of trans fats should be avoided, but somehow in the process ALL saturated fats got a bad rap. This is not true though, there are healthy fats and very unhealthy fats and even healthy fats become unhealthy if you cook them at a high heat.
Coconut oil has a unique ingredient called lauric acid, which is 50% of the fat content in coconut oil and is rarely found in nature. Lauric acid is converted into monolaurin, which has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-protozoa properties. Wow!
Coconut oil is also one of the FEW oils that stays healthy while cooking it at a HIGH heat. Add it to a smoothie, cook your pancakes and french toast with it, add it to your quinoa recipes to make them delicious….even use it as a moisturizer!
The possibilities are endless! Enjoy and be healthy ( :
