Coconut oil Cure OR concern?

Grace Forsythe from Viva! Health takes a closer look at what’s in coconut oil and whether it’s a wonder food or cause for worry

Is it a wonder product, capable of curing acne, promoting weight loss and even preventing heart disease and cancer? Or should it be shunned for its high saturated fat content? One thing is certain – coconut oil has seen a massive explosion in popularity. It’s in every health food shop across the UK, often promoted as a solution to various ailments.

About Vegan Food & Living Magazine

The rise in street food in the UK has been a revelation for us all, exposing us to new flavours and dishes from around the globe and thankfully there are some incredible vegan options. In the September issue of Vegan Food & Living we help you to cook up some of the best, including Gaz Oakley's 15-minute nasi goreng, which will quickly become a go-to favourite! Also this issue, we experiment with dishes from Italy and the Caribbean, whip up a selection of dishes that are ready in 30 minutes and cheaper than a takeaway, and sneak our favourite vegetables into some tasty bakes. We have part 1 of a new series starting in this issue too, called Women on the front-line of animal advocacy. This month we meet 3 inspirational characters who founded animal sanctuaries. If that's not enough, we reveal all about cruelty-free beauty, find the best eco-cities to live in around the world and find out why you need fibre in your diet and how to get enough of it.
