Saturated Vegetable Fat: Coconut Oil

Attention: open in a new window. E-mail

Until fairly recently, it was believed that all saturated fat was disease causing. Recent research has shed light on the benefits of saturated vegetable fats, like coconut oil. The medium chain triglycerides found in coconut oil have been shown to reduce body fat, and improve metabolism. Use coconut milk in smoothies and curries. Coconut oil is also very stable in heat and is an ideal frying medium for curries, stir-fries and stews. But coconut oil is still a saturated fat so it does have the potential to raise cholesterol levels if taken in excess.
