Subject: Coconut oil may be a good saturated fat alternative
By now most of us know that saturated fats aren't healthy. Many restaurants have cut them out. It's not always easy to do this, especially if you don't know what to use instead, so this gives you good info. You can use coconut oil in many ways to replace saturated fats.
- we really have no good data on coconut oil’s ability to reduce the risk of heart disease and strokes.
- Lauric acid is absorbed differently than palmitic acid, which could suggest that coconut oil doesn’t cause the same degree of LDL elevation as animal fat.
- I believe that you should look at coconut oil as a saturated fat.
"A study published in the journal Nutrition Reviews in 2016 analyzed multiple studies and found no difference in the LDL cholesterol level between people who used coconut oil and people who used butter."
