The nutritional value of coconut oil
66% of coconut oil is a medium-chain triglyceride, which is a royal family of fat, and will not be hoarded in the human body like other fats. Medium-chain triglycerides are easily burned into energy, and in the process of metabolism, more ketone bodies are produced than other fats (instead of glucose becoming a fuel for cells). Medium chain triglycerides are used in the treatment of obesity, cancer, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and other neurological diseases, which usually require a stable supply of glucose.
Medium chain triglycerides are not readily available, while coconut foods, especially coconut oil, contain more medium chain triglycerides than any other food. The cheapest source of this great fat is pure coconut oil. 470 ml is only worth more than 400 Taiwan dollars. You can drink it every day, both plain and seasoned. Add coconut oil to the hot drink.

The medium-chain triglyceride content of coconut fat is not as high as that of coconut oil, because it is not pure oil after all, but it is not as strange as eating coconut oil directly, and once used, it is quite delicious.
