Coconut

COCONUT: a superfood that is indispensable in your kitchen and bathroom

In recent years coconuts and coconut oil have been assuming an ever more prominent spot in the kitchen. Coconuts are not just good for you, they are also versatile. You can easily incorporate this delicious fruit into many different dishes, ranging from breakfast to dinner or simply as a tasty snack. Coconuts have also become a firm favourite in the bathroom as a basic ingredient for deodorants or toothpastes, a moisturising cream, a makeup remover and for many other uses.
Of course we have coconut oil but also coconut milk, coconut cream, coconut flour, coconut fibre, coconut blossom sugar, coconut water… the list continues.

Where do coconuts come from?

Coconuts come from the coconut palm tree, and a swaying coconut palm laden with coconuts on a white tropical beach immediately invokes thoughts of paradise. The palm tree itself is also a gift from the gods, as almost every part of it is used. The coconut itself is equally versatile, for example:

  • A hole is drilled into the coconut to drain the coconut juice or coconut water – a healthy drink.
  • The flesh is scraped from the coconut, mixed with water and pressed to produce coconut milk – perfect in sauces, soups or smoothies.
  • When the flesh is dried and pressed the result is coconut oil – a wonderful oil to fry or even deep-fry with, and it is the substance with a thousand-and-one uses in the bathroom.
  • Dried coconut fibre is ground into coconut flour – a gluten-free substitute for wheat.

What is coconut oil or coconut oil?

Coconut fat and coconut oil are actually the same thing. Coconut fat only becomes liquid at 25 degrees centigrade, and while here we get coconut oil in its solid and white form, in hotter countries it has a liquid appearance.

Coconut oil is very high in saturated fats, which is why it remains controversial and much-discussed. But the high levels of fatty acids mean that coconut oil is a stable oil that does not change in structure or composition when heated to high temperatures. That makes it a very good oil for deep-frying or cooking anything you desire.

Furthermore, saturated fats are the perfect fuel for our bodies – they are nothing but energy. And so, coconut oil is a great source of fat for regular consumption. It doesn’t matter in what form you consume it, you’ll notice the benefits it has to offer.

The health effects of coconut

Coconut is a superfood. There is hardly a part of your body that will not discover the benefits of eating or using coconut.
And coconut oil also stimulates your metabolism, burning more calories, as well as making you feel ‘full’ sooner so that you eat less.

This is why it is highly recommended that you include coconut in your diet. The easiest way is to use coconut oil when frying or roasting, but you can also use coconut blossom sugar instead of regular sugar or add a little coconut flour to your smoothies or use it as a substitute for wheat.

Coconut not only has a place in the kitchen, but in the bathroom too

Coconut oil is a perfect remedy for dry skin and dry hair, and you can use the pure oil you use in the kitchen as a skin or hair mask. But did you know that coconut oil is also wonderful for cleansing your face of makeup, as a lip balm and even for shaving? Or mix the coconut oil with a little sodium bicarbonate and your favourite essential oil to create a deodorant.

What if you do not like the taste or scent of coconut?

While a lot of people are not crazy about the taste or scent of coconut, that certainly does not mean everybody shares their feelings.
Also, don’t forget that the taste and scent of coconut oil can vary greatly, depending on its quality. And then there is the fact that as soon as coconut oil is heated and liquifies, the characteristic coconut flavour disappears and the coconut oil develops a gentle taste of its own.

If you really want to avoid the flavour of coconuts at all costs, deodorized coconut oil is also available. Although it is subjected to somewhat stronger processing, it still retains many of the good characteristics of coconut oil, and it has the advantage of being entirely free of the taste or scent of coconut.
But whatever your preference may be, the best coconut oil is organic, cold pressed (extra virgin), nondeodorized coconut oil that comes in a glass container.
