#Myth5 Cold Pressed Coconut oil is bad for cholesterol
Reality: Jivika’s Cold Pressed Coconut Oil is made out of tender coconut’s malai rather than dry copra, which has good fatty acids. These fatty acids are stored and later converted into energy. Interestingly, food cooked in coconut oil is rich in fiber, therefore, giving you a satiety feel.
