Coconut oil has a multitude of health benefits, which include but are not limited to skin care, hair care, improving digestion and immunity against a host of infections and diseases. The oil is used not just in tropical countries, where coconut plantations are abundant, but also in the US and the UK. People are discovering the wonders this oil can create and it is again gaining popularity throughout the world. Let us see how many of these benefits you are aware of.


Coconut oil is one of the richest sources of saturated fat you can find, with around 90% of calories as saturated fat.

Saturated fat was unfairly demonized a few decades ago by a few biased but highly influential scientists. However, new studies show that there is no association between saturated fat and heart disease.


The initial studies on coconut oil that supposedly demonstrated that it was unhealthy used refined and hydrogenated coconut oil that contained trans fats.

These studies have no relevance to the unrefined, organic, virgin coconut oil that is commonly found in health food stores today


Minola prides itself on its strict quality standards; its Minola Cooking Oil is one of the leading brands of coconut oil in the Philippines.
The use of Coconut oil has become a popular trend in the early years but in the mid 1980’s to early 2000s, a study revealing Coconut oil as unhalthy and causes heart diseases was widely accepted by the general public. Coconut products then suffered a lot and for many years use of coconut oil is considered harmful because of the fats and cholesterol derived from it.
It is only in recent years that the study is proven wrong. This is also the period when Coconut Oil is praised for its versatility. It has many uses and can be used for baking, skin moisturising, speeding up wound healing , increasing hydration for dry skin and of course its main use – frying food. As a superfood, coconut oil can boost metabolism and the saturated fats we used to consider unhealthy is in fact a safe source of energy for humans.


Dr. Dayrit’s presentation is an eye-opener. I learned that some oil when put under too much heat creates chemical that is harmful to our body. He also expounded on Coconut oil many health benefits because it contains and is rich in fatty acid called Lauric Acid.
As deep fried food have become our staple, at home or our favorite restaurant, what oil we use is important. We need to know that there are various types of oils for various methods of cooking. For deep frying, oil with saturated fats is best cooking.
Here’s a basic fact: Coconut oil – being a saturated fat – is capable of withstanding fiercer temperatures, making it useful oil for cooking. When it comes to high heat cooking, coconut oil is your best choice. Since the fatty acids in it are saturated, this makes it very resistant to heat.
