Delicious, great for cooking and even better for your heart, Coconut Oil is a fantastic alternative to other cooking oils. Hate the flavour of coconut but treasure its greatness? Fear not, Swanson Healthy Food Liquid Coconut Oil is the one for you. Rich in Lauric acid but completely flavourless, reap its benefits even if you don't like the coconut itself.
Coconuts have enjoyed something of a mixed and chequered history in our collective diets. Their fragrance and perfume-like tropical flavour has long been derided by many as being just too floral on the palate. At christmas, the often much maligned coconut flavour chocolates will often line the tin long after others have been devoured. Coconuts - some people love them, others loathe them.
Unfortunately, this often translates into people's attitudes to Coconut Oil too.
Now there is a way to get you super healthy Coconut Oil without having to worry about the flavour, love it or loathe it, you'll still get all the heart healthy benefits (as well as a great way to cook) from this famous tropical fruit.
Until relatively recently Coconut Oil was widely considered as being unhealthy. Used in junk food as an alternative to lard or butter, it was believed to be bad for your heart. But in one of the most dramatic turnarounds in dietary history, we now know exactly the opposite to be true.
Further studies have begun to uncover numerous nutritive benefits of coconut oil as a viable cholesterol-free cooking oil. Unlike other oils it is completely free from harmful trans fats. Swanson Healthy Food Liquid Coconut Oil Unflavoured is fully loaded with a healthy blend of capric, caprylic and lauric acids, all of which are capable of benefitting your health (and cooking).
You can have Coconut Oil in one of two forms. A kind of white butter which still retains a lot of the unhealthy saturated fats or in its liquid form, refined to keep only the good stuff. In order to keep liquid Coconut Oil at room temperature, the oil requires a certain form of processing.
Don't worry though, this is the good kind of processing. Working in much the same way as any regular Liquid Coconut Oil does, this unflavoured form is processed to increase the levels of capric acid without removing any of the organic lauric acid. This allows it to stay liquid form for not only your ease of use but also your health too.
Suitable for all kinds of use in the kitchen. Use liberally for baking, cooking and even sautéing. Also a fantastic oil for salads and dressings.
Ingredients: Liquid coconut oil (unflavoured).
