ok as for coconut oil, we use quite alot and have even taken to using in deep fat fryer. Is this ok? how many times can it be heated? Max. heat setting is 190 Celcius.

17% pufa is way to much, very unhealthy stuff imo

Agree with Cliff. As far as vegetable oils go, high heat peanut oil isn't as bad as one might think (about 17% PUFA). I think peanut oil is often used commercially for deep frying, and, if so, fast food fry might be a little less bad than I had thought... Anybody know more?

lard and goose fat are both high in PUFAs and not good
