    Ready for my smart-ass remark?

    Coconut oil is good. Hydrogenated coconut oil is NOT (contains trans-fatty acids). Coconut oil contains no trans-fat and is best purchased as a "Virgin Cocout Oil". No refining, bleaching, or deodorizing is used in virgin oils.

    All this being said...for the price, I'd stick with olive oil.

    Not a good fat IMO. Just stick to flax, almonds, natty pb, fish oils, etc.

    If you could find a bottle on sale, it'd be worth picking up. The chain-structure of the fatty acids allows coconut oil to not "spoil" like other vegetable oils.

    I agree. Non refined coconut oil is awsome.

    It contains ALOT of MCT's and MCT's have countless benificial effects. If I had to pic betwen coconut oil and olive oil as a fat source I would pic coconut anytime easily. MCT kills fungus and bacteria, boosts imune system, claimed to boost metabolism, gives quick energy ect ect ect...
    To bad I cant find virgin coconut oil/butter here in sweden

    Well choosing olive oil over coconut oil would be kind of like choosing olive oil over flax. Since they are meant to do 2 completely different things except beeing a source of energy. They are both non essential though so not using one wont present a problem. But both realy do have a place in a well balanced healthy diet.
