Melrose Organic Coconut Oil (butter) is a pure natural, virgin cold pressed Coconut Oil. The unrefined organic range retains the natural aroma and flavour of coconut. Coconut supplies a lot of nutrients important for good health, fighting various diseases and supporting metabolism. Coconut Oil is not altered by heat and is therefore recommended for cooking.
Coconut oil does not raise cholesterol levels but is quickly metabolised into energy. It is high in Lauric acid. Once mistakenly believed to be unhealthy because of its high saturated fat content, it is now known that the fat in coconut oil is short chain. It has no cholesterol and no dangerous trans-fats as found in other oils. Coconut fats are processed directly in the liver without putting strain on the digestive system and are highly recommended for those who have difficulty digesting fats.
Melrose Organic Coconut Oil (butter) is certified organic and free from artificial colours, preservatives, gluten and Genetic modification. This guarantees a fresh, delicious taste without any harmful additives, pesticides or herbicides.
Coconut oil is an excellent oil to use whenever high temperatures are needed, such as stir frys. Since it is a stable cooking oil, you can simply replace unhealthy oils in the diet with it. Being solid most of the time at room temperature, it can be a butter or margarine substitute for spreads or for baking. Any recipe calling for butter, margarine, or any other oil can be substituted with Coconut Oil.
Many people simply eat it by the spoonful.
