Coconut Oil Neutral
· Deodorized ·
400 ml 950 ml
BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil Neutral is the tasteless alternative to Virgin Coconut Oil and the vegan substitute for butter. It is treated with steam and is therefore neutral in smell and taste.
Recipe ideas and use of Coconut Oil Neutral
Like a neutral Frying Oil, it is versatile and can be heated to a very high temperature. The Coconut Oil is very suitable for exotic and local dishes, for deep-frying, baking and roasting or as a vegan butter substitute. Mild BIO PLANÈTE Coconut Oil is ideal for snacks and vegan dishes (e.g. Lentil Dhal). Coconut Oil is also an important ingredient in natural cosmetics and is traditionally used in skin and hair care.

"Zero Waste" tip for the further use of the jars
You can easily reuse our Coconut Oil jars. Be it for preserving jam, nicely designed as a tealight or as a storage container for tea, cereals or legumes. Get more suggestions at Upcycling & Creativity.
Since we use oil-soluble glue for the labels, the best way to remove the label from the coconut jars is with oil. Simply coat the label with oil, let it soak in overnight and peel off easily in the morning.

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.
What conditions and standards are behind the organic seal on our oils?
An organic seal is a quality and test seal with which products from organic farming are marked. In 2010, a binding new organic seal was introduced throughout the EU, also known as the EU organic logo, which identifies food from organic farming (a star-shaped leaf on a green background).
This seal replaced the German state organic seal (green hexagon with "BIO" lettering), which had existed since 2001, with the same standards in terms of content. Due to the high degree of popularity of its predecessor, both seals are still often used today.
The use of this certification is strictly regulated by the publisher and is subject to ecological requirements. Compliance with the criteria by producers is ensured by a documentation obligation as well as regular sampling and examination of product samples. Compliance with the regulations is monitored in Europe by the responsible Eco-Control bodies.
Foods labelled with the organic seal must, among other things:
• Not be produced by or with/from genetically modified organisms
• Not to be produced with the use of synthetic pesticides
• Contain no more than 5% conventionally produced components (in exceptional cases, if ingredients are not available in ecological quality, in accordance with Annex VO)
• not contain sweeteners and stabilisers as well as synthetic colourants, preservatives and flavour enhancers
• not result from monotonous crop rotations (two-, three- and four-field farming)
• and much more: more information on the EU Organic Label
