How Do I Use Nutiva Coconut Oil?
Many people have questions about cooking with coconut oil or the benefits of coconut oil. Nutiva Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil is ideal as a high-heat cooking oil (up to 350 degrees), as a nutritious substitute in baking, and as a “better-than-butter” replacement on bread, vegetables, or popcorn.
How do I bake with Nutiva Coconut Oil?
Replace other oils, butter, or shortening at a 1: 1 ratio and either melt it or use it at room temperature depending on your needs. Keep in mind oil will mix well when the rest of your ingredients are at room temperature. It make a great replacement for less healthy alternatives like vegetable oils and shortening, which can contain GMOs unless organic, as well as trans fats, the worst for your health. Use coconut oil at room temperature for flaky baked products. Melt coconut oil and use it in its liquid state to replace vegetable oil and butter.
