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
