Organic Coconut Oil
Coconut oil solidifies below 24 o C. That is why it is mostly found in the tropics as an oil and in Europe mostly as a fat. The transition from the solid to the liquid state does not affect the quality of the product.
Coconut oil is a vegetable fat that is extremely healthy for the human body . It smells wonderful and can be used universally in cooking. It is easily tolerated and a perfect source of energy for the body.
Many thousands of years ago, coconut palms were cultivated on various islands in the South Seas. They became important for the international economy in the 19th century, when the first plantations were established and the cultivation of palm trees gradually spread to all tropical coastal zones. Oil is made from the fruit of these palm trees, the coconuts .
To do this, the pulp must be crushed, dried and then pressed out. Over the past few decades, organic coconut oil, with its white color, has become increasingly popular. It smells very mild and is characterized by a pleasant but not overpowering note of coconut. Organic coconut oil , which does not contain any undesirable additives such as mineral oils, parabens or coloring agents, can be used in a variety of ways in the kitchen. Because the oil can be heated to a high temperature, it is equally suitable for cooking and frying and gives meat, fish or vegetables a fine, exotic aroma.
Coconut oil can also be used in baking, for example as a substitute for butter or margarine in a moist sponge cake or mixed with couverture as a cake frosting. Another way to use organic coconut oil is in face and body care. The oil is moisturizing and has an anti-inflammatory effect on sensitive skin. When kept at cool temperatures, coconut oil becomes relatively solid, but this does not affect its quality or taste.
