re: anyone use coconut oil?


This is basically what I have been led to believe:

quote:

Saturated fats are stable and do not oxidize even at high heat cooking temperatures including deep frying. However, high heat cooking will definitely oxidize polyunsaturated oils and to a certain extent monounsaturated oils (such as olive oil), which then creates harmful free radicals.

Unsaturated fats exposed to high heat and oxygen during cooking or commercial food processing, undergo a chemical change known as auto-oxidation, whereby free radicals are produced that cause rancidity. Up until the early 1980's, restaurants and fast food establishments used saturated lard, lamb or beef tallow fat for all their sauteing and deep frying. Sadly today, restaurants almost exclusively use polyunsaturated oils like canola, soy and corn.

It may be "Pure", but it is refined, and is aroma-less, and tasteless.

I am also Paleo for lent and have been using it.

You can get a big thing of it at Costco (probably Sam's too). I don't even usually taste much of a difference because I don't use a whole lot to grease a pan for cooking or something.

I love coconut oil to cook and to add to recipes. I also put it on my face at night and a small amount on my legs after I shower. Does great things for your skin.
