Coconut oil is a healthy traditional oil to keep on hand for whole-foods cooking and greasing, beauty uses (for moisturizing skin, hair, and lips), cleansing uses (such as tooth cleaning), and many other uses (like popcorn popping!). Anytime a recipe calls for butter, margarine, or cooking oil, you can substitute coconut oil, being aware that it will give a slightly tropical taste to the result!

From the site:
"We believe strongly that there is much confusion in the area of fats and oils in the US today. We believe that there is too much soy in the American diet (soy was not a major component of our diet prior to World War II), so we do our best to make sure that soy is not an ingredient in any of the products that we sell (other than fermented soy sauce as a seasoning). We also believe that there are too many polyunsaturated refined oils in the American diet, and as a result an overabundance of the Omega 6 fatty acids in our food today. We believe the traditional fats and oils that have been consumed in traditional cultures for hundreds if not thousands of years are still the healthiest fats and oils available to us today, including coconut oil, olive oil, palm oil, sesame oil, and butter from the milk of pastured animals."

If you get into Traditional Foods or Traditional Cooking at all (including Weston Price guidelines), you'll hear raves about coconut oil and its health benefits!
