Coconut oil is probably the healthiest oil you can cook with. (Extra virgin olive oil is healthy but ideally should be eaten cold, eg in salads, and the other vegetable/polyunsaturated oils should be avoided like the plague, contrary to what the so-called experts tell you! Saturated fats from pastured animals are the only other source of fat that should be used for cooking as they, like coconut oil, can be heated to high temperatures without degrading.) Anyway, if you're interested in coconut oil then I am probably already preaching to the converted :-) Normally you'd avoid a refined oil, but this one has the advantage of retaining all the health benefits while removing the odour/taste of coconut. (There are some dishes, such as meat and scrambled eggs, where I just don't like the taste of coconut.) Plus, if you're a follower of Ray Peat's iconoclastic thinking, you'll already be aware that refined coconut oil removes (naturally occurring) impurities that cause allergies in some people. So if the virgin coconut oil doesn't appeal to you, because you don't like the taste/smell of coconut or it doesn't agree with you, then this is the one to use. BTW Nutiva makes the best coconut oil, whether refined or virgin.

Запах отсутствует вообще, что странно. Хорошо, что взяла только для массажа. Хорошая стеклянная баночка, но за счет этого вес посылки увеличился.
