Cold pressed CoCoNut Oil

This Virgin coconut oil is extracted from the fruit of fresh, mature coconuts without using high temperatures or chemicals. Hence It is called Cold pressed oil.  This oil is unrefined and naturally filtered under direct sunlight.

Coconut oil has a saturated fat content of 90 percent..

However, coconut oil has grown in popularity in recent years, amid claims that it can do everything from supporting weight loss to slowing the progression of Alzheimer’s disease.

Manufacturers have replaced other oils with coconut oil in packaged products, and many households use it for cooking. It features not only in fried food, but in sweets, shampoos, coffee, and smoothies.


 Coconut oil contains 2.6 percent fewer calories than other fats.

It can be a tasty addition to a number of recipes, but it should be consumed with care.

Here are a few of them:

Increasing “good” cholesterol: A component in coconut oil has been found to give “good” HDL cholesterol “a nudge.”

Healthy skin:

It has been found to enhance protective barrier functions and have an anti-inflammatory effect on skin

Reducing stress:

It has antistress and antioxidant properties, which could make it useful as an antidepressant, according to recent researches on this subject

Shiny hair:

It makes hair shinier, because it penetrates better than mineral oils.


According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) National Nutrient Database, one tablespoon, or 15 milliliters (ml) of coconut oil contains:

  • 120 calories
  • 0 g of protein
  • 14 g of fat, of which 12 g is saturated, 1 g is monounsaturated, and 0.5 g is polyunsaturated
  • 0 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol
  • It provides no fiber and little to no vitamins or minerals.

Coconut oil is 100 percent fat, but the structure of fat in coconut oil differs from the saturated fat found in many animal products, which are mainly composed of long-chain fatty acids.

Coconut oil has an unusually high amount of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs). These are harder for the body to convert into stored fat, and easier to burn off than long-chain triglycerides (LCTs).

Many of the benefits claimed for coconut oil are due to the high MCT content.
