- Chef’s Tip: Why coconut oil? Well, coconut oil is one of the healthiest oils to cook with. Studies have shown that even after 8 hours of continuous deep-frying at 365°F (180°C), its quality does not deteriorate. Over 90% of the fatty acids in coconut oil are saturated, which makes it very resistant to heat.
Saturated fats used to be considered unhealthy, but new studies show that they are a completely harmless source of energy for humans.
Additionally, coconut oil has numerous health benefits. For example, it can help kill harmful bacteria and viruses, and may even help you lose belly fat.
With that said, feel free to use any oil that you want.
