- CREDE:COCONUT OIL ORG ODOURLESS 1L
Credé Organic Odourless Coconut Oil is made from dried coconut and is extracted without the use of harsh chemical solvents. It has a wide variety of applications, ranging from cooking and baking to its use as a nutritional and health supplement. With essential antimicrobials retained, Organic Odourless Coconut Oil is a health product that is tasteless and odourless. It is a healthier alternative to hydrogenated soybean and other unsaturated oils used in the processed food industry and for cooking purposes.
Organic Odourless Coconut Oil withstands high temperatures and does not breakdown easily compared to other oils, preventing the development of free radicals and trans fats at high heat. Unlike the polyunsaturated oils that easily combine with oxygen in air to become rancid, coconut oil has a natural resistance to oxidation.
Organic Odourless Coconut Oil is rich in medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are known to have many health benefits. These include its antimicrobial properties and weight management effects. MCTs are different from the longer chain fatty acids (LCTs) found in other plant-based oils. LCTs are typically stored as fat, while MCTs are burned up quickly by the body for energy.

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).
