Bridgedurso Posted October 15, 2012 Share Posted October 15, 2012 I have been under the assumption that coconut milk/oil, etc. must be a great Omega balances food, as everywhere I turn I'm being told how magical it is, while simultaneously I'm being told that the key to healthy fats is to reduce Omega 6 considerably and increase Omega 3. If I'm eating some nuts and nut butters, using olive oils in raw applications, and coconut oil as my primary cooking oil, imagine my surprise when I learned that coconut oil (and milk and butter) contains ZERO omega 6's. Isn't this throwing me off?? I use ghee some, but coconut oil is so much less expensive than grass-fed ghee that that's been my primary oil. I am feeling like I should only use the coco topically now, and make kerrygold butter my primary cooking fat. I have been using only ghee b/c of strong dairy allergies. more confused than before. Also, when I go to look up the ratio of various foods (nuts, etc.), every website seems to give different information. Is there a resource with an accurate table of these ratios for common foods?
