Can raw ( meat) coconut be a replacement for coconut oil?

Many people do not use coconut oil ,because traditionally they are not using it.VCO is very costly.and not available easily every where.so a few slices of raw coconut daily may be good option.It is cheap,available every where,fresh and unprocessed and contains all the nutrition in natural form.

Why not? In fact, in naturopathy, they encourage you to eat raw vegetables with a huge helping of coconut. Believe me, it works and keeps you sated for hours.

It is quite ideal to have raw coconut meat and it contains 30% oil. It is tasty and contains all other nutrients and the essential one FIBER. When ever raw meat is available it is better to take instead of oil. But you may need oil for cooking. Choose as per requirement.

Indiacratus, permit me to differ .

Most of the oils and fats we eat are long chain fatty acids.FA undergo different metabolic fates depending on the length of their chain.Coconut contains medium chain fatty acids.These are absorbed more quickly and efficiently from intestine and go directly to liver ,unlike LCFA which are transported through lymph.MCFA enter directly into mitochondria INDEPENDENT of transport system.The result of this accelerated metabolic conversion is that INSTEAD OF being stored as fat, the calorie contained (10% less than LCFA) in MCFA are very efficiently converted into fuel for immediate use by organs and muscle.

MCFA do not behave like FAT. It should be treated separately and differently from our understanding of fats and oils.

I wrote only what researchers are saying.A part of reference comes from research study publishes in AmericanJournal Of Clincal Nutrition.

I am telling you a very interesting fact.You may be knowing that Canola oil belongs to Rape seed family,used extensively in USA and other countries.Mustered oil, which is extensively used in India as cooking oil is banned in USA.Mustered and canola belong to same rape seed family.Mustered oil is allowed only as skin massage oil in USA.Do you see the contradiction.

Do not get moved by any propaganda.Always think and understand before you take a leap.

For a hungry stomach, combination of coco nut,banana and jaggery is a good meal in moderate quantity.
