Coconut oil can also be used in the kitchen. It contains medium-chain fatty acids (MTCs) which are very easy to digest. Coconut oil is a very delicious source of energy and a food beneficial for the heart and blood vessels. It also acts as a natural antibiotic and has antiviral and fungicidal (antifungal) effects. It is heat-resistant with smoke point above 200°C. Cooking with coconut oil is therefore an excellent, healthy substitute to use when frying, deep-frying, stir-frying, baking, etc. The oil also softens the taste of fried foods.
