One area where coconut oil has an edge over olive oil is its smoke point. What’s a smoke point? That’s the temperature at which the oil begins to boil and break down.

Meanwhile, coconut oil maintains its natural chemical composition at high temperatures, making it suitable even for deep frying without risking our health. So for salads, choose olives, but for eggs, choose coconut!
