Coconut Oil for Cooking

Regarded as a healthy saturated fat, coconut oil is made up of medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which can help the body in many ways, such as supporting heart health and immune function. Keto-dieters and bulletproof coffee drinkers may search out coconut MCT-oil as part of a daily wellness regimen.

One of the many attractive qualities of coconut oil is its ability to remain stable at high temperatures. Cooking sprays and flavorless varieties make it easy to incorporate into recipes for sautéing and other high-heat cooking. It’s also an excellent substitute for butter when baking. Whether your recipe calls for shortening or you prefer a butter flavor, Vitacost carries a coconut oil for that! Try cooking or baking with coconut oil using these recipes from The Upside blog:
