The Only Cooking Oil that Doesn’t Threaten
your Health

Last Christmas, Kim Barnouin and Rory Freedman, the authors of “Skinny Bitch”, 2005’s best selling book on the health and beauty http://www.globalcoconut.com/imagest/coconut-oil.jpgbenefits of the vegan lifestyle, published their cookbook, “Skinny Bitch in the Kitch”, which became a New York Times best seller in less than six weeks. 

In it, they advise readers to reject olive oil for cooking in favor of organic coconut oil, because unlike conventional vegetable oils, it can be heated to 170 degrees Celsius without turning itself into a health threatening, cholesterol promoting, trans-fatty-acid or transfat. But that is not the only benefit of choosing organic coconut oil. It is also kind to your heart and good for your body in so many ways.

Cooking with Organic Virgin Coconut Oil is Simple, Healthy and Delicious.

Virgin Organic Coconut Oil is a white, semi solid oil with a texture mid way between soft butter and margarine. It has a subtle coconut aroma when melting and frying, and may add a pleasant hint of coconut taste in food cooked in it.

How do you tell a premium quality coconut oil from the rest?

Coconut oil naturally changes state from liquid oil to solid mass depending on its temperature.

The purity/quality of any coconut oil can be judged by a simple visual test. Coconut oil, in its liquid state should be crystal clear (above approx’ 25C/?? F) and should be pure white in its solid form. (below approx’ 18C/ ??F)

If a liquid oil is preferred for a specific use (e.g. blending in a smoothie or salad dressing), simply heat in a bowl within a bowl of hot tap water - it will melt quickly.

Because Virgin Coconut Oil is high in natural anti-oxidants, it is not necessary to refrigerate it. Simply keep it in the pantry cupboard exactly as you would other cooking oils. It will remain fresh for a year or more.

It is easy to use - just scoop as much as you need out of the jar on a knife blade or in a measuring spoon. Because it is soft and creamy, it creams easily into flour for baking and quickly melts in the pan to liquid oil for frying.

How to Use this Health Promoting Oil:

  • brown onions, garlic and other ingredients for casseroles and stews
  • brush liquid oil onto vegetables, fish and meats before BBQ-ing
  • brush sliced potatoes, pumpkin and carrots with liquid oil for oven roasting
  • pan fry fish, meats and eggs
  • substituted for other oils and fats in baking
  • ideal for deep frying and flash frying (e.g. salt and pepper squid) because it will not turn into a dangerous transfat

How Can Coconut Oil Transform Your Health?

The most important short chain molecule in coconut oil is Lauric acid, which is a major constituent of coconut oil and also, interestingly enough of mothers milk. Just as breast milk enhances a newborn’s immune system, so Lauric Acid derived from coconut oil has the power to enhance the adult immune system, as well as:

  • Help with diseases caused by inflammation such as arthritis
  • Protect the liver
  • Have a positive effect on Type 2 Diabetes

Monolaurin, which is created from Lauric Acid inside the human body, is antiviral, antibacterial, and anti-protozoa (parasites). Studies have shown it to be effective in destroying:

  • Viruses such as HIV, herpes, cytomegalovirus, influenza
  • Pathogenic bacteria, including listeria, monocytogenes, and helicobacter pylori
  • Protozoa such as giardia lamblia.
  • Fungal infections such as Candida albicans

There is also evidence that coconut oil helps prevent osteoporosis by improving absorption of minerals such as calcium. Studies are now being done to test it effectiveness against serious illness such as AIDS and SARS. Preliminary results have been very promising!

Weight Loss!

Pig pic
Research is mounting, by simply substituting polyunsaturated vegetable oils and margarines with coconut oil…and doing nothing else…you can lose significant amounts of weight! It will fill you up so that you don’t crave foods that will put on the pounds, and it is easily converted to energy instead of settling on your waist, hips and thighs.

Better management of Type 2 Diabetes

Reliable scientific evidence indicates that organic, cold pressed coconut oil stimulates the metabolism and encourages the production of insulin, reduces free radicals that inhibit its absorption into the cells, and is not deposited in the blood vessels as cholesterol. Put simply, coconut oil is seriously beneficial for people who have diabetes.

Heart friendly and low cholesterol

There is a scientific reason why organic coconut oil is less likely to deposit cholesterol in your blood vessels and fat around your waist and buttocks than conventional “healthy” polyunsaturated vegetable oils and margarines. It is because coconut oil has a different molecular structure and, as a result, it is not absorbed into your body the same way.

Natural skin and hair care

Share the secret of the naturally soft and youthful looking skin of the beauties of Tahiti, Hawaii and the South Seas. Did you know that organic coconut oil has the closest structure to your own natural skin oil or sebum? Say goodbye to dandruff and enjoy your hair and skin at its most radiant.
