Coconut oil, or copra oil, is an edible oil extracted from the kernel or meat of mature organic coconuts harvested from the coconut palm (Cocos nucifera). It has various applications and benefits. Because of its high saturated fat content, it is slow to oxidize and, thus, resistant to rancidification, lasting up to six months at 24 °C (75 °F) without spoiling.
