- CREDE:COCONUT OIL ORG 1L
Credé Organic Coconut Oil is cold-pressed from the white flesh of the coconut. It is one of the most versatile and healthy oils available and consists almost entirely of healthy medium-chain saturated fatty acids. Coconut Oil does not negatively affect blood cholesterol. The medium-chain saturated fat in coconut oil is used primarily as a source of energy which helps to increase metabolism. Coconut Oil consists of roughly 50% lauric acid which has documented anti-viral, anti-bacterial, and anti-prozotoal properties.
Organic coconut oil in its natural, un-hydrogenated form is suitable for frying and cooking due to its stable nature. Its high saturated fat content means that the oil does not oxidise, and also limits the development of trans-fatty acids and free radicals in the oil. Traditional cooking oils such as refined sunflower, canola, and corn oil, are easily damaged when used for frying and create unnecessary exposure to free radicals and oxidised fat. Virgin coconut oil avoids all of these problems when used for cooking.

Fatty Acid Composition
Note: Credé have both virgin and refined (odourless) coconut oils, both of which are certified organic. Note that the refined coconut oil has been refined entirely without the use of chemicals. The crude oil is filtered, then bleached using bleaching clay (which is filtered out) and then steam-treated to remove any further impurities (this process removes the coconut smell as well).
