Default Lou Ana Coconut Oil at Wal-Mart - Is this the best oil?



Advertise Here

Last night I saw the Lou Ana Cononut Oil in the Oil section of my Wal-Mart.
It was $5.xx for a container of it.

Now can someone remind here why I want to buy and store it?

How does it taste? Can I sub it for liquid Canola Oil for everyday cooking?

Someone fill me in on this.

Thanks,

Kathy

It doesn't go rancid. Or at least it takes a loooong time.

We stick with canola. Coconut is extremely high in saturated fats if I recall correctly.

Longevity is a plus, I guess..

I may be mistaken, but I think there is a thread here that talks about using it to clean a wound and as an antibiotic.

I just tried to do a search for threads that talk about 'coconut oil', but got a "Fatal Error" message.

You can also use it as a skin lotion. I have one container of it, as a back up, and also store solid Crisco. It takes a long time for me to use a bottle of cooking oil, so it wouldn't do to store more than a few bottles.

It depends...

1) I think coconut oil is excellent for nutrition and health. After much study I think polyunsaturated oils are not fit for human consumption.

2) I happen to like flavorful coconut oil so I buy mine at the health food store which has the aroma of coconuts and a slight taste of coconuts. There's nothing wrong with Lou Ana coconut oil per se but it has all the flavor and aroma removed, which is excellent if you dont' like coconut or don't want that flavor in your foods.

Coconut oil is good for you. The only question is what do you want that coconut oil to smell and taste like? Coconuts or no aroma and flavor?

PS: Because it is a short chain saturated fat it has few places or oxygen molecules to attach which is what makes oil go rancid. Coconut oil has an extremely long shelf life precisely because it is saturated and strongly resists going rancid.

Coconut oul makes the best popcorn! But if the coconut aroma and flavor is removed it kind of defeats the purpose. I might consider another brand.

I love coconut oil, it also doesn't scorch as bad as other oils.

Coconut oil works good as a rub for sore joints and muscles. I don't know WHY or HOW it works, but it seems to work.

So could this take the place of regular canola oil for frying my meats and fried potatoes?

Years ago I worked at Taco Bell and that is where I first came into contact with it, We fried all of the taco,tostados and other shellswith it. We also would use some of it to fry hashbrowns and eggs (on the overnight shifts) I have used it for 30+ years since. I know people say it has a higher fat content than most oils but are we really going to care in a situation when calories are important? Right now I use it for fried chicken it give it the best flavor that you can get.

I use coconut oil mainly for soap making as it creates really nice bubbles. Also I use it in stir fry. The main reason I don't use it for other frying is it is kind of expensive. Typically I use lard.

Look in the Health, Fitness & First Aid forum. There is a thread with good information about coconut oil. I just bumped it up to the top of that forum and here's the link:

What about olive oil? Does it keep? I have several gallons that I got on sale in metal cans.

Olive oil doesn't keep any longer than any other kind of oil, but you can always use it for fuel if you can't cook with it anymore.

I buy the big box of Bakers and Chef's at Sam's Club and get Peanut Oil. It's about 25% higher but the benefits are worth it. It seems to taste better, last longer, and is better for you!

I just wanted to offer what I have used. Never messed with the LouAnn

little fact ... did you know before it was known as Canola Oil it was called RapeSeed Oil.
