Lard or Coconut Oil: Which has More Saturated Fat?
We’re going to talk about lard and coconut oil—which one has more saturated fat?
Interestingly, coconut oil has 90% saturated fat, while lard has 40% saturated fat (50% monounsaturated). The question is, why would you be concerned about saturated fat?
For the last 5-6 decades, people have been afraid of saturated fat based on a lie. A rogue scientist in the 50s omitted valuable information from a study, which led to a false conclusion.
This then started a campaign to get millions of people to stop consuming fat. Recently, the new dietary guidelines finally changed their viewpoint on cholesterol and fats.
It now says that increased cholesterol does not increase the risk of heart disease. The problem with seed oils is that when you cook them, you create trans fats. When you reheat them, you also create more trans fats.
Trans fats can cause some serious damage. When you combine trans fats with heat and with carbohydrates or starches, you get another toxic chemical and other things that cause proteins to become very sticky.
This can potentially lead to certain health problems.
