Al­though Dou­ble Pagoda is bet­ter known for its sesame oil th­ese days, it’s go­ing back to its roots and rein­tro­duc­ing co­conut oil. (The fac­tory was founded to ex­tract co­conut oil dur­ing the Ja­panese Oc­cu­pa­tion, when other sources of ed­i­ble oil were scarce.)

Co­conut oil boasts a va­ri­ety of ben­e­fits in­clud­ing im­prov­ing di­ges­tion, en­hanc­ing nu­tri­ent ab­sorp­tion and slow­ing down signs of ag­ing with its anti-in­flam­ma­tory prop­er­ties. Made from fresh co­conuts, Dou­ble Pagoda co­conut oil is choles­terol- and trans fat-free, and pro­vides a plant source of sat­u­rated fats for veg­e­tar­i­ans. The oil is bot­tled for an easy, no-drip pour and is avail­able in vir­gin, ex­tra vir­gin and pre­mium vir­gin. With a mild co­conut aroma, the vir­gin ver­sion is suit­able for fry­ing eggs and stir­fry­ing veg­eta­bles, while the ex­tra vir­gin co­conut oil is ideal as a salad dress­ing. If you pre­fer en­joy­ing your co­conut oil by the spoon­ful daily, we rec­om­mend the pre­mium vir­gin co­conut oil. From $10 for 250ml of vir­gin co­conut oil, avail­able on Redmart
