I have never used coconut oil.

hi there,

I don't think that it does, because it's low in monounsaturated fat relative to other oils:

Coconut oil contains approximately 92.1% saturated fatty acids, 6.2% monounsaturated fatty acids, 1.6% polyunsaturated fatty acids.

Almond oil contains 62% monounsaturated fatty acids, 24% polyunsaturated & 6% saturated fatty acids.

Macdamia nut oil has the most MUFAs. It contains up to 85% monounsaturated fats.

From what I've read about coconut oil, it has other health benefits, but it's not really a MUFA.

Because I'm new AND curious, I'm wondering if Coconut Oil is considered as MUFA?

Do it, NOW!
