What is the shelf life of Fushi’s coconut oil and the recommended storage requirements?

Fushi’s coconut oil should not be refrigerated. It should be kept at room temperature. Coconut oil has a very long shelf life of up to 18 months.

Why is coconut oil so beneficial for cooking?

Coconut oil has a high smoking point of 350° F. The smoking point of an oil is how high a temperature it can reach before the natural impurities in the oil begin to burn. The lower the smoking point, the lower the temperature the oil can be heated to before it starts smoking as a result of burning impurities. Higher smoke-point oils are better for high-temperature cooking, including deep frying.

Does coconut oil raise cholesterol?

Yes, but only the good cholesterol that you want to raise. The body needs good cholesterol, or HDL, to function at its best, and coconut oil raises those levels. At the same time, it is said to either lower or leave alone the levels of LDL cholesterol, or the bad kind. So while your cholesterol levels might see a net increase, the effect is a positive one.

Where is does Fushi’s Coconut oil originate from and how many coconuts are one jar?

Fushi’s coconut oil is from Sri Lanka. Coconut oil tastes different depending on the origin. Sri Lankan coconut oil is a much lighter aroma and flavour. This oil is fresh pressed to retain quality potency and efficacy. Fushi's Organic Coconut Oil is also one of the most potent and pure types of coconut oil, using approximately 3.5 coconuts to make a 250g jar of oil.

Is coconut oil high in saturated fat?

Coconut oil happens to be abundant in Lauric acid, a type of saturated fatty acid that - although it does raise cholesterol levels, mainly increases HDL, the healthy type of cholesterol that you want to be high. The chain length of saturated fats is another indicator of healthfulness. Coconut oil contains medium-chain triglycerides, which are used directly for energy by your body. These fatty acids are mostly lost during the refining process, but they are present in unrefined coconut oil. This means that the fat content of unrefined coconut oil may prove beneficial.
