To celebrate National Vegetarian Week, be sure to get your hands on This is Good’s macadamia nut oil. Approved vegetarian, vegan and cholesterol-free, This is Good oil contains only 15% saturated fat and is the new and healthier alternative to coconut oil, which contains a staggering 83% saturated fat. Because of the oil’s high monounsaturated fat content (76% – compared to coconut oil’s 6%), it helps to reduce the ‘bad’ fat cells in the body, with other benefits including a decreased risk of heart disease and a high Omega 9 content.
