Marma coconut oil has the specific feature of containing a large proportion of lauric acid, which is important for good health. Lauric acid is a medium-chain fatty acid which represents roughly 50% of the coconut’s composition.
Mother’s milk is the only thing in nature that contains as much lauric acid. The fats present in coconut oil have nutritional properties that are very close to those found in mother’s milk.
This oil, which becomes solid at ambient temperature, can be used as a butter spread or for cooking.
