To answer the question: yes it's very good for you, at least it is for me. Almost all cookies, like oreos, were made with coconut oil until the junk oil manufacturers convinced people that the high fats in coconut oil were bad Eekfor you. so the cookie guys started putting all that really great Razzoil in instead. Actually, I use organic extra virgin (not Scarlett) coconut oil for cooking, and even in place of those junk skin lotions. My naturopathic doc says that the goodness from the oil can be, oh, what's the word, "soaked in" through the skin. Internally, just a tablespoon a day, mixed with salad dressing or with olive oil for cooking, is supposed to do wonders for the body. My body actually likes it, and my already beautiful Roll Eyesskin stays healthier in this dry desert climate.

To quote from the (obviously biased) label on my jar of Garden of Life Extra Virgin Coconut Oil - purchased in my local health food store - "...is a stable, healthy saturated fat that is naturally free from trans-fatty acids. It contains medium-chain fatty acids such as lauric and myristic acids, that have shorter chain lengths than most animal derived long-chain saturated fatty acids.

If my doc likes it, it works for me.
Actually - and I can't prove it - Hawaiian Tropic must have put something else in the mix besides just coconut oil. I use extra virgin coconut oil on my desert skin every day and no one has even noticed.
As far as food goes, I had some red lentils cooked with one tablespoon of coconut oil and they tasted like they had a pound of butter in them...fabulous!

What is your desert skin?

I know you would, but it (coconut oil) remains a solid till 76F so drinking it with or without a straw in the Bay Area is highly unlikely. No matter though, I am sure you have some designer silver cutlery in you glove box for when these situations arise. A spoon would be more than sufficient.
