What is the use of coconut oil

 coconut oil

Coconut oil is widely used in food and non-food fields. Coconut oil is usually used as one of the ingredients of ice cream and candies. The mixture of coconut oil and hydrogenated palm oil and the resulting mixture after transesterification are processed into margarine and shortening. Coconut oil is also used as a component of cream, biscuit cream and confectionery fat.

Using the method developed by Babayan, the mixed fatty acids obtained by hydrolyzing coconut oil are re-esterified with C8 and C10 fatty acids and glycerin to randomly generate medium carbon chain triglycerides. Many pharmaceutical and baby food formulas use medium-chain triglycerides as the main source of medium-chain fatty acids.

Coconut oil is the raw material for making high-quality soaps (especially suitable for naval soaps). The bar laundry soap made from it has good foaming properties even in water of medium hardness. However, due to its extremely high saponification index, the price of soap is also high.

It is worth mentioning that palm kernel oil and coconut oil have similar composition and properties. They cannot be used as frying oil, and bubbles are likely to overflow the pan.

The fatty acid derivatives in coconut oil are raw materials in many non-food fields. The fatty acids or their monoesters (such as methyl esters, ethyl esters, etc.) produced by coconut oil through hydrolysis or alcoholysis are raw materials for the oleochemical industry.
