Ordinarily I am SOOOO good about reading labels. I didn't think when buying coconut oil I would have to be that picky. So I bought it last week and figured I'd try it out. But this morning while waiting for my pan to get hot, I took a look just to see. To my surprise, it has 0.5g of trans fat per serving. So I've been consuming about 2-3 grams per day for almost a week.
Here's the label:

Unfortunately it was the only one to choose from otherwise I probably would have looked more closely. I'm heading to the health store tomorrow so I'll pick up some REAL coconut oil then. I've since learned that coconut oil is supposed to look more like olive oil and actually have some flavor.
It actually feels really gross to know I have that junk in my system. Let's hope I never make that mistake again.
