Royal Green's coconut creams for cooking - pitched as a healthier alternative to oil - are seeking supermarket listings.

Available in Garlic, Herbes de Provence and Spices (rsp: £5.99/250ml), the creams contain 100% organic odourless coconut oil, are vegetarian and can be used for baking, roasting, stir-frying and marinating.

Royal Green claimed the creams were a first for the UK, were good for maintaining normal cholesterol levels and contained fewer calories than most oils. They are sold through the Natural Origin website.
