Coconut Oil – though this one has been heavily debated, according to the Weston A. Price Foundation  

Coconut oil is 92% saturated with over two-thirds of the saturated fat in the form of medium-chain fatty acids (often called medium-chain triglycerides). Of particular interest is lauric acid, found in large quantities in both coconut oil and in mother’s milk. This fatty acid has strong antifungal and antimicrobial properties. Coconut oil protects tropical populations from bacteria and fungus so prevalent in their food supply; as third-world nations in tropical areas have switched to polyunsaturated vegetable oils, the incidence of intestinal disorders and immune deficiency diseases has increased dramatically. Because coconut oil contains lauric acid, it is often used in baby formulas.

Cottonseed Oil
Grapeseed Oil
Hazelnut Oil
Oat Oil
Palm Oil
Peanut Oil
Rice Bran Oil
Safflower Oil
Sesame Oil
Soybean Oil
Sunflower Oil
