Too fatty?

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - WELLBEING -

Co­conut oil may not be as healthy as many peo­ple think it is, with the Amer­i­can Heart As­so­ci­a­tion ad­vis­ing against its use in a re­view of sat­u­rated fats. It turns out the fat in co­conut oil is 82 per cent sat­u­rated, mak­ing it worse than but­ter, at 63 per cent sat­u­rated fat. Co­conut oil was also found to in­crease lev­els of “bad” choles­terol. Olive oil or sun­flower oil were sug­gested as health­ier al­ter­na­tives.
