They are assimilated without the help of bile, are soluble in water and penetrate without problems in the bloodstream and liver, where they are transformed into energy and, secondly, in fat reserve, so they contribute less to obesity than other fats
On the other hand, studies suggest that it has antimicrobial, antiviral and antifungal action, both internally and externally. It can be used as body oil in fungal or bacterial infections. In tropical countries like Thailand it is used for cooking because it withstands high temperatures well.
