How to use Coconut Oil

You can use it for cooking. Coconut oil is ideal for cooking because around 90% of its fatty acids are saturated. This makes it extremely stable at high temperatures. It has a high smoke point of 175°C.

Coconut oil is semi-solid at normal room temperature and melts at 24°C so it is advisable to store in a cool cupboard rather than the fridge (especially in Maltese hot summer days).

Use it to sauté or stir fry vegetables or rubbing with seasons for baking.

You can use it in recipes. In fact, in most recipes you can substitute oil or butter with coconut oil in a 1:1 ratio.  Take care to let cold ingredients like egg or milk come to room temperature before blending together.

You can also add a teaspoon to your coffee or tea, or even with your yogurt or your breakfast oatmeal.

5 brands of coconut oil are on offer between the 11th and 24th March 2019 at PAMA and PAVI.
