Cook Healthy Dishes with Minola Cooking Oil

Food has always been a huge part of any family celebrations here in the Philippines. I’m sure that you cooked delicious dishes for your family during the past Holidays, but the question is, are they healthy?

Minola Cooking Oil is one of the leading cooking oil brands that help out in making delicious dishes for every Filipino kitchen for the past 50 years. They are also in close partnership with the country’s leading coconut industry organizations such as Philippine Coconut AuthorityUnited Coconut Association of the Philippines and Coconut Oil Refiners Association in actively promoting the wonderful benefits of using coconut oil in our daily life.


Minola is also the same cooking oil that I grew up seeing in our very own kitchen. Minola is certainly a trusted family brand, not just for me, but esential even for my mother’s cooking needs. No wonder that growing up, I got to taste deliciously prepared meals using Minola Cooking Oil.

Just recently, I stumbled into this new TV commercial advertisement featuring its newest and youngest brand believer, child actress and host Ryzza Mae Dizon. Have you seen this TV ad yet? If not, Ryzza in the said TV ad was calling Minola Cooking Oil, being “Lauric.”  Honestly, at that very moment, the first question I had in mind was, “What in the world is Lauric?!”

Minola Cooking Oil: “Full of Lauric”

Minola Cooking Oil is made of coconut oil that is MINOLAURIC, meaning it has full of LAURIC OIL. According to the Philippine Coconut Authority, Coconut oil is the most readily digested of all the fats of general use in the world.” Coconut Oil the tropical oil stands out for its valuable contribution to good health.”

Pure coconut oil contains 50%  Lauric Acid — the kind of medium-chained fatty acid that is also found in breastmilk. When Lauric acid is present in the body, it is converted into monolaurin, a monoglyceride compound which exhibits “antiviral, antimicrobial, antiprotozoal and antifungal properties. It acts by disrupting the lipid membranes in organisms like fungus, bacteria and viruses, thus destroying them.”

The presence of Lauric Acid in Minola Cooking Oil has notable health benefits like:

  • boost your family’s immunity
  • helps fight viruses and bacteria
  • effective treatment for candida albicans and fungal infections like ringworm and athlete’s foot
  • targets bacterial infections as well as lipid-coated viruses like herpes, the measles, influenza, hepatitis C and HIV

Lauric acid is basically non-toxic, which gives it a distinct advantage over modern pharmaceutical drugs that are typically used to fight viruses, bacterial infections and fungal infections.


Whatever special menu that you’re cooking for the family, it is very important that these foods are not only delicious, but most importantly healthy, because our loved-ones deserve only the best.


Minola MINOLAURIC Cooking Oil will surely one of your best and affordable cooking allies in this goal of preparing healthy dishes for you and your family to enjoy not just during Holidays, but all year-round!
