Not all fats are bad – coconut oil consists of more than 90 percent saturated fats. Most of these are Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCTs), which support the immune system, the thyroid gland, the nervous system, the skin, and provide readily available energy. Nearly half of the fat in coconut oil is of a type rarely found in nature called lauric acid, considered by some to be a “miracle” compound due to its rejuvenating properties. Most common vegetable or seed oils are comprised of long chain fatty acids (LCFAs) which are associated with poor health. Sunfood Coconut Oil is made from certified organic coconuts directly from the Philippines. The oil is produced when coconut flesh is dried at low-temperatures then cold-pressed. It can be used in cooking, in your smoothies, even on your skin and hair!
