For most of my cooking, I use olive oil, butter, or coconut oil. On occasion we'll have some lard, but I'm not too experienced with it. Coconut oil seems to be a good choice for high temperature cooking because saturated fats are more stable... (more)

I can't stand the taste of coconut in everything, but I want to use it. Is deodorized coconut oil okay or should I stick to the virgin form?

If you use coconut oil, stick to the unrefined, extra-virgin variety. "Deodorized" coconut oil is refined coconut oil, and subject to chemical cleaning and bleaching. If you don't like coconut flavor, your best bet is not to use it. :-) (more)

I'd argue the benefits of tocotriene vitamin E probably outweighs inhibition towards HMG-CoA reductase. Balance is key, whenever you reduce variety in diet, you're going to run into issues like this. Unless you're using virgin red palm oil... (more)

Coconut cream has more coconut solids in it. It's delicious to eat on its own, but not right for cooking. It melts, but it will make everything taste much more like coconuts than oil will, and it will probably mess with the texture of whatever you... (more)

Rice bran oil is popping up everywhere - is it a thumbs down from the Paleosphere? It is stable at high heat, but I suspect it has the same problems as 'seedy' oils. Avoid at all costs? I submit to the wisdom of the Jedi Masters.

Fats are on a continuum. Rice bran oil is about 33% PUFA, so it's better than something like soybean oil or corn oil but worse than beef tallow or coconut oil.

A better route would be to eat coconut flesh, whole macadamia nuts or avocados to get a bunch of vitamins and minerals along with the fats. Adding refined oils to your diet drives the nutrient density downward.
