Coconut Oil versus the Alternative
Coconut oil is new to many people but it is much like olive oil. The flavor is wonderfully versatile in both savory and sweet dishes. Both coconut oil and olive oil are exceptional oils with amazing health benefits. There are several oils on the market that I won't recommend for daily use, oils such as canola, soya bean, peanut oil and corn oil to name a few. They go through a process called
hydrogenation which from my research means it is the manipulation of vegetable and seed oils by adding hydrogen atoms while heating the oil. The medical and scientific communities are now fairly united in the opinion that hydrogenated vegetable and seed oils should be avoided.These unsaturated fats, are artificially manipulated into saturated fats, are also called trans fats,
and no doubt you've heard about them lately. Some places abroad have now outlawed their use. There is no controversy anymore regarding the health dangers of these artificially saturated fats. Without spending too much time on the other oils I'll dive right back to coconut oil, when it comes to coconut oil what surprises most people is that coconut oil can change between a liquid and solid state very easily. Whenever the temperature is below 76 degrees Fahrenheit, coconut oil will be solid, sometimes it can be both at the same time...liquid with bits of solid floating around.
The question must be answered, which is healthier for me: olive oil or coconut oil ? Well the answer isn’t clear cut. Both coconut oil and olive oil contain 120 calories per tablespoon. All of the calories in both oils come from fats. Neither of the oils contain trans fat or cholesterol. Smaller known differences between coconut oil and olive oil is the smoke point, smell and taste. Olive oil has a lower smoke point than coconut oil and thus is not the ideal oil for higher temperatures. Oils can break down beyond their smoke points which start to change the molecular structure and integrity of the oil, so using olive oil for frying or cooking at high heat foods are not ideal as you won’t get the wonderful benefits of the oil that way, personally olive oil is ideal for salad dressings and steam vegetables, however frying or cooking with coconut oil is better as it has a high smoke point. Coconut oil works in both baked goods like cakes, banana bread, chocolates, pastries..You can use it as part of the onion, tomatoes, sweet peppers and garlic sauté for any fish or meat dishes, it makes the best stir fry’s and cod fish stews. We use it to replace all our recipes that ask for butter and other oils, My personal opinion is don’t give up your olive oil but don’t ignore coconut oil either. We will soon post some awesome recipes on our site for you. Happy cooking-Camille
