Coconut oil is a coconut oil, obtained from coconut meat (dry), white or pale yellow fat. Coconut meat (dry) contains 65% -74% oil and 4% -7% moisture. Coconut trees grow on islands in the tropics or along the coast of the mainland.
China's major producing areas are southern Hainan Province, Leizhou Peninsula, Yunnan Province and Taiwan Province.
From the above constants, it can be seen that there is a great deal of specificity compared with other oils and fats. The saponification value of coconut oil is very high, and the refractive index is very low. Through this method, it can be identified whether coconut oil is mixed with other oils and can even be quantified. This change is mainly caused by the fatty acid composition of coconut oil. Coconut oil has a saturated content of more than 90% in the fatty acid composition, but the melting point is only 24-27 degrees, which is due to the high content of carbonic acid. This is why the Polenske and Reichert-Meissl values are high. The fatty acid composition from coconut oil can also explain the reason why complete hydrogenation has a very small effect on the melting point of coconut oil (45.1 degrees).
【Introduction to the effects of coconut oil】:
Coconut Oil ("Supplement to Outlines")
[Source] is the endosperm of palm planted coconut, oil extracted by crushing and steaming.
Plant form see coconut bar.
【Herbs】 Coconut oil is a white liquid in tropical areas and a butter-like solid in cold places. It has a special odor and is fragrant when fresh.
The specific gravity of the oil is 0.8354, the refractive index is 1.4295, the alkalization value is 258, and the iodine value is 8.4-9.3.
Chemical composition editing
[chemical composition] pulp oil content of 60 ~ 65%.
The oil contains 20% of free fatty acids, 2% of linoleic acid, 7% of palmitic acid, 9% of sheep fat acid, 5% of fat oleic acid, 10% of sheep wax acid, 2% of oleic acid, and 45% of lauric acid.
The sterols of coconut oil contained 4.5% of tempehenol, 31.5% of stigmasterol and fucosterol, 6% of alpha-spinasterol and sterol, and 58% of β-sitosterol.

Coconut oil is the only oil in our daily foods that consists of medium-chain fatty acids. Medium-chain fat molecules are smaller than other foods, and are easily digested and absorbed by the human body. Digestion of dietary coconut oil does not require human pancreatic digestive enzyme systems. It exerts very little pressure on the body's enzymes and hormonal systems. Moreover, the liver is more inclined to use medium-chain fatty acids as a fuel source for production, thereby increasing the efficiency of metabolism.
Medium-chain fatty acids have a natural integrated antibacterial ability. When we take medium-chain triglycerides, they are converted into mono- and medium-chain fatty acids in our body. These two substances have strong anti-bacterial ability and can kill diseases. Bacteria, fungi, viruses, and parasites.
Coconut oil, a saturated fatty acid, also acts as an antioxidant. It can be used to treat children's rickets, adult osteoporosis, and protect the skeleton from free radical damage. Fresh coconut and cold pressed diet coconut oil contain a type of fat called sterols. Sterols have a similar structure to progesterone. They are converted into progesterone by sterols in the human body and converted to deoxyepiandrosterone (DHEA) and progesterone. Other hormones. When the body needs these hormones, it takes progesterone to convert it. The cause of osteoporosis as women get older is the imbalance between progesterone and estrogen. Progesterone is generally considered to be involved in the osteogenic process. If this is true, progesterone in coconuts will be beneficial to bone health.
