The Real Deal About Cooking With Coconut Oil

          Probably the best way to eat healthy is by eating raw food such as fruits and vegetables. But in all honesty, when everyone around us is devouring whatever food they like especially in parties and buffets, we can not help but give in. Consuming raw food takes lots of discipline and dedication. Aside from that, Filipino food is prepared mostly by frying with cooking oil. Fried food seems to be the staple food among our countrymen. Fried Tilapia, fried chicken, even our breakfast is fried egg or bacon! What if we stick with frying and forget about the health hazards of repeatedly using cooking oil?

Here's the good news! It is actually possible to stay healthy even when eating fried food. It all boils down to the kind of cooking oil used. 

I had the opportunity to attend the discussion "Coconut Oil: The Truth Shall Make You Healthy which was sponsored by MINOLA PREMIUM COCONUT OIL. I was astounded by the amount of information I got from Dr. Fabian Dayrit. He is the go-to-guy when it comes to this subject. Why, you may ask? He is a professor from Ateneo de Manila University, Acting-President of National Academy of Science and Technology and Chair of  Scientific Committee for Health, Asian and Pacific Coconut Community.

Dr. Dayrit briefly discussed about the history of the Coconut and that it has spread across the ocean by floating and surviving for 120 days until it reaches different parts of the world. Also in the talk was the difference between cooking with Saturated fat and Unsaturated fat. Frying with the former produces Free radicals and Trans fat which is harmful to the health like causing Obesity and Heart diseases while frying with the latter poses no health risks. Coconut oil is easier to digest and is not stored as fat in the body and can easily be processed by the liver. MINOLA PREMIUM COCONUT OIL is definitely good for your body! Minola is a Lauric oil and when absorbed by the body becomes monolaurin which is known to have anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties
