So, what is raw coconut oil?

Raw coconut oil is a versatile and healthy ingredient derived from the fruit of the coconut palm tree. It is extracted from the kernel or meat of mature coconuts through a cold-pressing process, which preserves its natural nutrients and flavors. Raw coconut oil is high in medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are known to promote weight loss, improve brain function, and boost energy levels. It is also a rich source of antioxidants and essential fatty acids that provide numerous health benefits, including reducing inflammation, supporting immune function, and protecting against heart disease. With its mild coconut aroma and taste, raw coconut oil is an excellent addition to a variety of dishes, including smoothies, baked goods, and stir-fries.
