Quick question on Coconut oil and Hydrogenation.

Answered on August 19, 2014

Hey, I bought some no name brand of refined coconut oil (you can barely google the stuff) the other day cause I was running out of organic expeller pressed coco oil and I knew the refined stuff still beats the tartar out of the GMO oils health-wise. As long as the stuff turns liquid at room temperature I'm okay on the trans fat front, right? I got some Louana coco oil tonight that I know doesn't have hydrogenated crap in it if that's not the case. Thanks for the help.

Refined coconut is good for frying and higher temp cooking. It isn't a trans fat unless it says hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated.

Coconut oil is mostly used for frying and in South Asian curies.Coconut oil contains a large proportion of lauric acid. Where as Lauric acid is destroyed by some oil processing methods. It is also used in chocolate crackls and white Christmas.
