It is true, coconut oil is rich in lauric acid and this helps to strengthen the immune system, however we do not recommend ingesting a spoonful of coconut oil a day as recommended by many portals ... rather we recommend using it.coconut oil instead of vegetable margarines, hydrogenated fats and animal fats for the preparation of baked goods.

However, for the preparation of sweets or other baked goods that involve the use of butter, margarine and fats with a solid consistency, coconut oil is a healthier alternative.
