Also worth noting is that the natural trans fats might not be so bad compared with the industrial hydrogenated ones. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19935865 (Although, I don't drink milk.)

Some trans fats are natural. See cows milk.

Coconut lard is the same as coconut oil (solidifies ~ room temp.) It's 90+% saturated in MCT form (this is what you want.) Usually you get it cold pressed from a natural ferment, and it's all gravy. Trans fats are when you buy those heavily processed hydrogenated oils.
