Choosing the kind of cooking oil to use is my family’s topic recently. At the supermarket, there are many brands of cooking oil and as a mom I always buy cooking oil which has health benefits best for my family. One of the healthy cooking oil today that can be found in the market is the Minola Premium Coconut Oil.
The coconut oil that came from the coconut tree “Tree of Life” has countless benefits. It is one of the “coco wonders” that most of us are unaware of. I have heard some say that coconut oil was rich in saturated fat and they regard it as unhealthy. Well, I think it depends on the brand and how you use the cooking oil. Knowing the health benefits that we can get in using the Minola coconut cooking oil will make you think that you should be using this brand of cooking oil.
Health Benefits in using health-benefits-in-using-minola-cooking-oil
- The presence of coconut oil is good for hair and skin care, and good for cholesterol level maintenance.
- Relief from kidney problems, heart diseases, kidney failure, high blood pressure and diabetes among others.
- Has immunity-boosting benefit and has the ability to fight viruses and bacteria because it is “MINOLAURIC” (full of lauric oil)
What is Lauric Oil which is present in Minola?
Lauric oil is the same substance found in mother’s milk. It is a medium chain fatty acid. Pure coconut oil contains about 50% lauric acid. When lauric acid is present in the body, it is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound which exhibits antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties. It acts by disrupting the lipid membranes in organisms like fungus, bacteria and viruses, thus destroying them.
What I like best from its health benefits are the immunity-boosting benefit and the ability to fight viruses and bacteria which is the most notable advantage in using it. These benefits are indeed good for my growing children to avoid bacterial illness in their tummy.
When I asked my mom-in-law on what brand of cooking oil she had used in the past, she mentioned the Minola cooking oil. My mom-in-law used to be the owner and the cook of their restaurant in Manila more than 20 years ago now. No wonder why Minola Coconut oil is one of the leading brands of coconut oil in the Philippines for the past 50 years with its premium quality trusted by generation.
Did you know that in cooking, the coconut oil smells and tastes better compared to other cooking oil? This is going to be great in cooking sumptuous dishes this wonderful season of Christmas, New Year, and other events.
Another good thing about the Minola cooking oil is that it is economical. Why? Because you can enjoy the good benefits of coconut oil without spending a lot and serve delicious healthy dishes at the same time for your family. Isn’t it wise?
Aside from the Minola coconut cooking oil, Minola margarine is their new product to consider.
