Thread: Coconut and Bounty bars

    Default Coconut and Bounty bars

    Are coconuts healthy? I eat a lot of bounty bars and was told by a
    buddy coconuts are bad if you eat to much??
    I know they contain a laxative, but apart from that?
    Also, talking about a chocolate bar here, so maybe not even worthy of
    an answer....

    Everything is worthy of an answer. Pay no attention to the Snots in side the
    Box.

    Coconut candy contains coconut and palm oils, which are highly saturated
    fats, and so artery clogging.

    Your Buddy knows jack-shi...

    I can't speak for the contents of a Bounty, but coconut meat/oil/etc is
    definitely healthy, beneficial even. This assumes that it hasnt undergone
    any horrible forms of processing, of course.

    Ahhh, there it is...

    Your information is many years out of date.

    We've moved on from 'healthy' unsaturated garbage like margarine, along
    with other myths about various forms of fats.

    What real, actual evidence do you have that coconut fats are "artery
    clogging"?
    (I'm sure the FDA site ought to produce some good evidence to support
    your case

    Coconuts are indeed high in saturated fats - but they are GOOD fats.

    Actually, cybercat is right. Coconut and palm oils are high in saturated
    fat.

    If coconuts have a laxative and the bar contains chocklate (suppossedly
    constipating) you have one counteracting the other.Everything should
    come out fine(if you get what I mean).

    I /know/ they are high in saturated fats.
    What I am saying is that it isnt a problem, far from it.

    Since I have to watch my saturated fat intake, I'm interested to know where
    your source is to back that up? I've done some Google searches and find
    some articles that support what you have said, but on the Internet you can
    find supporting and refuting articles about everything.

    That is correct, so basically you'll dismiss any info I dig up for you?

    Most people will have a point of view one way or the other - and are not
    willing to challenge their POV. Most. I, however, did change my point of
    view.

    Perhaps a more useful tactic would be to investigate the history of
    coconut oil (as in it's usage in mainstream food), its eventual phasing
    out - and the real reasons why it was phased out.
    I shouldnt have to say it - but anything your FDA says cannot be trusted
    one iota, but you probably already realise that

    You're confused, dahling. Transfats AND saturated fats are bad. The "good"
    fats are monosaturated, polyunsaturated. Maybe others. Saturated fat raised
    LDL (bad) cholesterol. Coconut and Palm, if I recall correctly, are the only
    saturated fats of vegetable derivatives.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturated_fat

    An excerpt:

    Diets high in saturated fat are correlated with an increased incidence of
    atherosclerosis and coronary heart disease according to a number of studies,
    both African green monkeys[4] and human, such as a study of infant diets
    [5], 22 hypercholesterolemic men [6][7][8] Some studies have suggested that
    diets high in saturated fat increase the risk of heart disease and stroke.
    Epidemiological studies have found that those whose diets are high in
    saturated fatty acids, including lauric, myristic, palmitic, and stearic
    acid, had a higher prevalence of coronary heart disease.[9][10][11][12]
    Additionally, controlled experimental studies have found that people
    consuming high saturated fat diets experience negative cholesterol profile
    changes.[5][13][14][15] A 2003 meta-analysis published in the American
    Journal of Clinical Nutrition concluded that diets high in saturated fat
    negatively affected cholesterol profiles - predictors of a heart attack and
    other cardiovascular diseases.[16]

    And ther is nothing good for you about ANY saturated fats. What our pseudo
    savior may be confused about is the current thought that rather than eat
    transfats, a little saturated fat is preferable, such as a small amount of
    butter. The key is, a small amount. Because saturated fat may not be as bad
    for us as transfat, but it is still plenty bad. Unless you like heart
    attacks and strokes. Not to mention great big giant asses like those hanging
    on Lou DeCruss and Bob "Granpa Fatass Goth" Terwiliger.

    No. Most definitely *not* confused on this subject, *especially* this
    subject.

    I use coconut oil daily, along with fresh, full cream unpasteurised/
    homogenised milk. Then there is the fresh Rabbit/Venison/Sheep/Chickens
    and Ducks which only adds more of those nasty saturated fats

    Yes, I've heard it all before. The same old generic mainstream rubbish
    that is years out of date.

    But of course, you keep right on believing it until some authority you
    trust says otherwise.

    So then a more correct answer to the OP's question really should be to err
    on the side of caution if there is a history of, or known issues with heart
    disease and/or cholesterol problems rather than a blanket statement that it
    is beneficial to everyone.
