They used to say Coconut Oil was healthier, but now they are saying it's not. It's higher in saturated fat. I switched back to using olive oil.

About coconut oil -- I've read about teeth swishing using it but could never bring myself to do it.

I'd say it depends a bit on the recipe. Coconut oil can be replaced by olive oil if your saute-ing with it.
If you're adding coconut milk to a recipe ... such as making a soup creamier, you could use dairy milk or soy milk or almond milk.
If you're looking for replacement in a black rice recipe made with coconut milk, you can cook rice in plain water.

There is an article called 'The truth about coconut oil'! I found it by clicking on learn, the nutrition, then articles. If you click on the search symbol and put in coconut oil, the articles concerning it will pop up and you can get some info. there!
