Assalamualaikum,

Pada bulan Januari-February tahun ini, Sarawak dilanda banjir. Ini disebabkan fenomena ‘King Tide’ bertembung dengan hujan lebat. Apabila air hujan tidak dapat mengalir ke sungai, air sungai pasang besar, berlakulah banjir.

Musibah ini menimpa pembekal-pembekal kelapa kami juga.

Di Sarawak, kalau banjir janganlah cuba bermain air. Terutamanya di kawasan yang betul-betul di tepi sungai.Ini kerana, populasi buaya yang semakin bertambah.

Inilah sebabnya pesanan produk-produk kami tidak dapat dipenuhi. Santan, kerisik dan minyak kelapa dara banyak yang tempah.

Kami memohon jutaan maaf kerana tidak dapat memenuhi permintaan. Kami juga amat hargai pelanggan-pelanggan yang setia dengan kami.

Minggu lepas, kami baru dapat bekalan kelapa dari tempat baru. Walaubagaimanapun, kami terpaksa memenuhi pesanan dari pelanggan-pelanggan dekat dahulu. Insya Allah minggu ini kami akan memulakan pemprosesan minyak kelapa dara. Apabila ada yang siap, kami akan hubungi sesiapa yang sudah menempah.

Terima kasih.

Hari ini, kita dapat melihat pencapaian dalam bidang Pertanian, Penternakan dan Perikanan di Malaysia. Tahun ini, kawasan dibahagi mengikut negeri dan kluster. Kita tidak terlibat secara langsung hari ini dan permintaan mendapatkan booth pun ditolak. Apa pun, gembira melihat kawan-kawan yang terlibat. Ada yang berhubung melalui facebook sahaja dan sekarang dapat berjumpa.

  1. Lama tak jumpa owner Kek lapis Station, Sibu. Puan Nazatusyima.

Kawan dari kalangan Peserta RBC pun hadir dan ada yang menang anugerah dan terlibat dalam aktiviti jualan.

2. CocoDamia Menang tempat ke-2. Pakar Coklat.

3. Saudara Khairul Azhar dari Johor. Pakar dalam penanaman ubi kayu.

4. Syarikat milik Saudara Muzairee pun hantar wakil untuk promosi produknya.

Antara perkara yang menarik minat kami ialah pemenang kategori produk minyak kelapa dara. Sebagai pengusaha minyak kelapa dara, kami nak tengok standard peringkat kebangsaan juga.

Mungkin sebab syarikat kita bergerak tanpa agensi bimbingan, produk kami tidak mendapat perhatian.

NIUfood-VCO-small Mungkin pada masa akan datang, kami pula terpilih?

Selain itu, beberapa gambar yang menarik minat kami,

Semalam kita memunggah kelapa dari supplier kita. Supplier ni satu-satunya yang membekalkan kelapa matag kepada kami. Keluasan kebun beliau tidaklah besar tetapi ‘yield’ kelapa matag sangat tinggi. Jumlah kelapa dalam setandan sangat banyak. Saiznya pun besar. Jadual dibawah menunjukkan perbezaan kelapa yang dikaji oleh kami;

Ramai orang beranggapan, kelapa kecil rugi jika dibeli. Ia rugi jika dibeli pada harga yang sama kelapa besar. Jadi jadual di atas boleh menjadi panduan untuk meletak harga. Kiralah ikut nisbahnya.

Santan putih dan bersih.

Ramai pelanggan dan pesaing datang ke kedai bertanyakan rahsia santan kami putih dan bersih. Ada yang mengesyaki santan kami ada ‘bahan tambahan’ (kami sendiri pun tidak ada pengetahuan berkenaan itu). Rahsianya senang saja. Cuci kelapa bersih-bersih dan tapis santan 2 peringkat.

Gambar di atas apabila bekalan kelapa beberapa tahun dahulu. Sekarang, keadaan tidak macam dahulu. Bekalan kelapa berkurangan sejak bulan November 2012 sehingga sekarang. Urusniaga membekal ke kilang PKS, kami hentikan NOV dan DEC 2012. Sekarang, urusniaga membekal ke kedai runcit dikurangkan. Kami cuba memenuhi keperluan harian penduduk tempatan sahaja sekarang. Antara sebab kekurangan kelapa ialah;

1) Musim tengkujuh DEC dan JAN, menyebabkan pertumbuhan kelapa terencat.

2) Sikap pekebun yang tidak konsisten dalam membekal kelapa.

3) Banyak pokok kelapa telah ditebang.

Dalam meneruskan perniagaan ini, kami terfikir untuk mengimport kelapa dari Indonesia. Tidak logik bukan? Pokok kelapa banyak di Samarahan, tetapi terpaksa mengimport. Kami sudah penat berurusan dengan pembekal yang tidak konsisten.

Diharap, pelanggan yang membuat pertanyaan tentang membekal Minyak kelapa dara, dari Kuala Lumpur (1), Johor (1), Sarawak (2), secara pukal, ikutilah perkembangan semasa kami.

Terima Kasih.

Saturated fat

Saturated fat has been blamed as the cause of heart disease and it should be avoided at all cost in diet.

It is said that:

  1. Saturated fat is easily converted by the liver into cholesterol
  2. It will increase blood cholesterol level
  3. Increasing the risk of heart disease

But the fact is NEITHER saturated fat NOR cholesterol cause the heart disease.

  • Those who have heart disease SOMETIMES also have elevated blood cholesterol level
  • NOT ALL people with high blood cholesterol develop heart disease
  • NOT ALL people have heart disease has high blood cholesterol.
  • MOST people who have heart disease DO NOT have high blood cholesterol.

Other risk factors associated with heart disease include high blood pressure, age, gender (being male), tobacco use, diabetes, obesity, stress, lack of exercise, insulin levels and homocysteine level.

There is the term ‘artery-clogging saturated fat’. The fat that collects in arterial plaque is primarily unsaturated fat (74%) and cholesterol. Saturated fat does not collect in the arteries like poly- and monounsaturated fats because it is not easily oxidized, and only oxidized fat ends up as arterial plaque.

Vegetable oils are easily oxidized by over processing and heating. Saturated fat is not the only substance that the liver converts to cholesterol in our body. Other than fats, carbohydrate which is the main component in our diet also being converted into cholesterol.

Coconut Oil

All the criticism that has been aimed at coconut oil is based primarily on the fact that it is saturated fat and saturated is known to increase blood cholesterol. No strong evidence that the coconut oil affect blood cholesterol level. In fact, numerous studies show that coconut oil has neutral effect on cholesterol level.

The reason coconut oil has neutral effect is because it is composed of medium chain fatty acids. These fatty acids are burned almost immediately for energy production. So, they are not converted into any form in the body.

Clotting and heart disease

Clotting happens when protein in your blood called platelets stick together. In healthy people, the blood become sticky when it become in contact with a wound or injury.

But it’s dangerous when platelets stick to arterial walls because it can block the flow of blood and cause heart attack or stroke.

Many people blamed saturated fat for increasing platelet adhesiveness (blood stickiness) thus promoting the development of blood clots.

In fact, all dietary oil, both saturated and unsaturated, with the exception of Omega-3 fatty acids (flaxseed & fish oil) and medium chain fatty acids (tropical oil), increase blood stickiness.

So, when you eat corn, sunflower, soybean, canola and peanut oil you are increasing your risk of suffering a heart attack or stroke.

Atherosclerosis

Heart disease is caused by atherosclerosis (hardening the arteries), which is manifested by formation of platelets in arteries.

Contrary to popular belief, the principle component of arterial plaque is not cholesterol but protein.

Atherosclerosis develops as a result of injury to the inner lining of arterial wall. The injury can be result of a number of factors such as toxin (alcohol and tobacco), free radical, viruses and bacteria.

When blood-clotting proteins (platelets) encounter an injury, they become sticky and adhere to each other and to the damaged tissue, to facilitate healing. This is how blood clots are formed. Injuries from any source trigger platelets to clump together.

When this process occurs in the coronary artery, which feeds the heart, it is referred to as a heart attack. If it happens in the carotid artery, which goes to the brain, the result is a stroke.

Free radical injury

Another major cause of arterial injury that can lead to atherosclerosis is free radical. These renegade molecules, found in tobacco smoke, polluted air, and many substances in our food and environment, can cause damage to cells and tissues.

One common source of free radical is oxidized lipid (fats) found it rancid fats and refined oils that has been stripped of natural antioxidants. The only way to stop a free radical is with antioxidant. Antioxidants are molecules that neutralize free radicals, making them harmless.

Coconut oil is a natural source of antioxidant and compared to other vegetable oils, coconut oil is chemically very stable and is not oxidized easily. Therefore, it can protect the heart and arteries from injury caused by bacteria, viruses, and free radicals. By removing the cause of arterial injury, coconut oil prevents further damage, allowing arterial walls to heal, thus not only reducing the risk of heart disease but actually promoting healing.
