The oil, which is extracted from mature coconuts, is high in healthy saturated fat (91%). This high content also makes this superfood slow to oxide, thereby prolonging its shelf life up to six months. Coconut oil does not contain the unhealthy Long Chain Fatty Acids (LCFAs) found in many vegetable or seed oils.
According to medical research, the health benefits of coconut oil are wide-ranging.
