Made from the fruit of the coconut, this oil has been promoted as a better alternative to butter. Consumers seem to have bought into the hype that it’s among the healthier options when it comes to oils, and vegans, who eat no animal fat, may use it as a butter substitute (it’s a white solid at room temperature). However, coconut oil is high in saturated fat, so it’s recommended that it’s used sparingly. A study conducted in 2016 found that people who consumed coconut oil had higher LDL cholesterol levels than those who consumed unsaturated fats. Therefore, coconut oil might not be as healthy as everyone says it is.
