Melbourne: Australian supermodel Miranda Kerr has lashed out at magazine reports for misquoting and misrepresenting her use of coconut oil.
Kerr slammed Cosmopolitan magazine after US experts warned people against consuming large amounts of the oil.
The magazine ran a cover story quoting Kerr as saying that, “I``ve been drinking it since I was 14 and it``s the one thing I can``t live without. I will not go a day without coconut oil. I personally take four tablespoons per day, either on my salads, in my cooking or in my cups of green tea.”
But the new mother said that she was misquoted.
“I never did an interview with Australian Cosmopolitan magazine and unfortunately they have misquoted and misrepresented comments posted on my blog,” News.com.au quoted her as telling the Herald Sun.
“When it comes to coconut oil, I personally find it beneficial and use approximately four teaspoons of coconut oil a day (in my salads and meals), not tablespoons.
“Everyone is different, but that is what works for me and I prefer it as a substitute to other oils more readily used in day-to-day food preparation and cooking. I suggest people consult with their health practitioner for what is right for them,” she added.
