Coconut Oil

Question: Coconut Oil? I work at the movies.. We use coconut oil for the popper.. Now I heard coconut oil is the 1st or 2nd worst kind of oil to use... Is that true? Thanks very much! :]

Answer: Coconut oil is made up of around 90% saturated fat, 6% monounsaturated fat, and 2% polyunsaturated fat. Differing from other highly saturated fats however, coconut oil is mostly made up of medium chain fatty acids
