I spoke with the lead researcher, Lau- www.preservehealthmd.com
rence Eyres, chairman of the Oils & Fats
Specialist Group at the New Zealand In- 772.252.1425
stitute of Chemistry, for further insight.
The study found that coconut oil,
which is 92 percent saturated fat, rais-
es LDL (bad) cholesterol less than but-
ter does, but significantly more than
unsaturated plant oils do. So when it
comes to heart health, Eyres puts it
plainly: “It would be dangerous, and
rather silly, to replace your extra-vir-
gin olive oil with coconut oil.” There
– that question is answered. But there
are plenty of details and nuances where
that came from, so read on.
Coconut oil has a lot going for it from
a culinary perspective. It has a love-
ly, distinctive flavor that gives dishes
a sumptuous tropical taste. It is solid
at room temperature, a quality central
to many recipes. But unlike most oth-
er solid fats, it is vegan, so it appeals to
the ever-growing legion of plant-based
eaters. Also, like other saturated fats,
it is very stable in heat, so it is good for
stir-frying and sauteing. (Contrary to a
common myth, monounsaturated fat
such as olive oil is also quite stable in
heat, and good-quality olive oil is excel-
lent for high-heat sauteing. Polyunsatu-
rated oils such as corn oil are less stable
in heat, and nut oils should not be heat-
ed much at all.)
But one of the biggest things coco-
nut oil has behind it right now, unfor-
tunately for the consumer, is a lot of
marketing hype that makes it out to be
a miracle food. “There is nothing wrong
with coconut oil in moderation, but it
is not a cure for everything or a wonder
fat,” Eyres says.
Many of the purported benefits of co-
conut oil point to it as a source of medi-
um-chain fatty acids (MCTs), a type of
fat that is processed differently by the
body so it is absorbed and metabolized
more efficiently than other fats. But the
