Raw food, Raw foodism, or rawism is a diet and lifestyle where one only consumes uncooked (cooked below 104 degrees fahrenheit), unprocessed, and often organic vegan foods as one's diet. Raw food diet advocates claim that there are many benefits to eating raw foods, including weight loss, more energy, clear skin, improved digestion and improved overall health. Foods below 104 degrees are believed to have much higher enzyme and nutritional values keeping food "all-natural" and raw like nature intended.
So where does coconut oil fit into this world of raw food and raw foodies? The majority of raw food dishes require cooking oil that must be either a raw-nut butter or a cold-pressed oil. True cold-pressed oils are extracted using a unique process where the oil is never heated above 105 degrees. However, many oils claim to be cold-pressed, but sadly most are heated over 105 degrees to extract more oil and to speed up the manufacturing process, after which, the oil is "cold-pressed". However, the damage has already been done...the nutrients and "rawism" have been lost. Of these cold-pressed oils, coconut oil leads the pack with its incredible nutritional values and health benefits to your body that go far beyond being just a delicious oil for your meal.
So, how can you ensure that the coconut oil you use for your raw food diet is 100% raw? It basically comes down to speaking to the coconut oil manufacturer. (Note: There are only a few coconut oils on the market that are raw food certified and that guarantee their oil is never heated above 105 degrees ensuring they are suitable for raw food diets.)
