Coconut Oil Neutral
· Deodorized ·
400 ml 950 ml
BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Neutral is the neutral alternative to virgin coconut oil. It is gently steam-treated and thus neutral in odor and flavor. Similar to a frying oil, it is well suited for both local and exotic dishes, but also for deep-frying or as an alternative to butter, in short: it is extremely versatile.
Coconut fat has the same positive qualities as the virgin coconut oil: It contains for the greater part medium-chain fatty acids.
BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Neutral is not hydrogenated. It is bottled in vacuum-sealed glass containers. This so-called vacuumizing serves as a quality assurance and is responsible for the characteristic »pop«-sound when the container is opened. The additional guarantee label ensures that the Coconut oil neutral has left our oil mill in an impeccable condition.

What is MCT oil and is Coconut oil one of these?
Our BIO PLANÈTE Coconut oil is a natural unrefined Coconut oil containing approx. 10 % MCTs (caprylic, capric and capronic acids; chain length 6 to 10 carbon atoms). MCTs are metabolised differently compared to longer fatty acids and are used more effectively for energy (not as an adipose store), making them interesting for parenteral nutrition in treatment and for ketogenic diets and athletes.
Pure MCT oils are mostly fractions of the three MCT fatty acids obtained from Coconut oil. It is hoped that the high MCT concentration will bring benefits, but there is no evidence for this. On the contrary: high amounts of isolated MCTs can lead to digestive issues (this has not been observed with coconut oil, as very much higher amounts would be needed).
Lauric acid (12 carbon atoms) is often counted as one of the MCTs. This is because, according to the classification used by chemists, they are “medium-chain fatty acids”. Biochemically speaking, however, lauric acid is metabolised very differently from the three shorter MCTs, so it cannot be said to have the same effect (and pure MCT oils do not contain lauric acid).
What does "desodoration" mean?
After pressing, the oil is briefly treated with water vapour. This neutralises its taste and the oil becomes heat-resistant.
