Posted by Ren (Virginia) on 12/15/2006

there are 2 ways to make your own coconut oil, one is already mentioned and the other is boiling the grated and squeezed coconut pulp.The oil then rises to the top. is this second method ok... i mean by heating it to a boil am i destroying and good things in it ? And also, can the internal portion of the coconut oil be taken by cooking your food with the oil....i mean does one have to drink the oil?

Coconut oil is actually much more stable in very high cooking temperatures than any (lard comes close) vegetable oils on the market. It won't break down chemically and it won't react with sugar, starch and oil such as french fries or potato chips, creating a cancer causing chemical compound called acrylamide. Potato chips and french fries manufacturer should use coconut oil since a cancer causing chemical won't be a problem when compared to what they are doing now.

And also, can the internal portion of the coconut oil be taken by cooking your food with the oil....i mean does one have to drink the oil?

Moderation is best, mix it in ordinary cooking as a replacement for vegetable oils. Most people in health tend to over do this. It is best to start slowly and learn from them. Ted
