When I asked Chef Kornfeld about whether coconut oil was safe, she explained that it was one of the healthiest oils and that it was great to cook with in a vegan kitchen.
Of course, I did my homework. I found that the studies that reviewed the health impacts were done on partially hydrogenated coconut oil, not the virgin oils that are available in today's market. Indeed, there is no evidence that I could find that the oil is unhealthy. Quite the opposite.
