Why is Coconut Butter Good For You?


Most people are familiar with coconut oil. It’s frequently in the health and wellness spotlight. Coconut butter isn’t as well-known.

The two products look and smell similar, but each has different characteristics. Here’s a look at the benefits of each.

What’s the difference between coconut oil and coconut butter?

 

Coconut oil is made by cold-pressing oil from coconut meat. It’s solid at room temperature, and becomes liquid when heated. It has an oily, mild to medium intensity coconut flavor and odor.

Coconut butter is arguably the peanut butter of the tropics. It’s made by pureeing coconut meat, including the oil. The spread is solid at room temperature and softens when heated. The end result is a spread with strong coconut flavor and odor.

Coconut oil and coconut butter nutrition

 

Coconut oil is made entirely of fat, mostly saturated. One tablespoon has around 14 grams.

Coconut butter is made from the whole coconut, so it also contains saturated fat, around 10 grams per tablespoon. It has nutrients coconut oil doesn’t, most notably fiber. One tablespoon of coconut butter has about 2 grams of dietary fiber.

Other nutrients in coconut butter are:

  • protein
  • potassium
  • magnesium
  • iron

Coconut oil and coconut butter are high in calories. Depending on the brand, both products have about 110 to 120 calories per tablespoon.

Cooking with coconut oil and coconut butter

 

Coconut oil is mainly used as cooking oil. Refined coconut oil has a high smoke point and can withstand high-heat cooking. It’s great for frying and sautéing. Extra virgin coconut oil has a lower smoke point and is generally recommended for temperatures of 350°Fahrenheit or less.

Coconut oil can be spread on toast and substituted for butter, shortening, and vegetable oil in baking. Keep in mind the flavor of extra virgin coconut oil is not as neutral as other oils and adds a moderate coconut taste to baked goods. Refined versions have slight to no coconut flavor.

  • adding coconut butter to smoothies
  • melting it and drizzle over fresh fruit or frozen yogurt
  • stirring it into oatmeal
  • adding it to a piña colada

Coconut butter burns easily and isn’t your best bet for stovetop cooking over anything higher than very low heat for a brief time. It's perfect for making fudge and candies and may be substituted for butter or oil. It will add a strong, sweet, coconut flavor to your recipes.

Pros of butter

 

  • It contains fiber.
  • It can be used to make fudge and other candies.
  • It can be applied to the skin as a beauty product.

Coconut oil and coconut butter have distinct differences in appearance, taste, and functionality. Coconut oil is best for frying and cooking. Coconut butter is great for making no-cook candies, or candies cooked slowly over very low heat.
