- Allergy to coconut oil or related plants: Coconut might cause serious allergic reactions in people who are allergic to coconut oil, coconut palm pollen, components of coconut, or other members of the Arecaceae plant family.
- High cholesterol: There’s some concern that coconut might increase cholesterol. Some research found that people who eat large amounts of coconut have higher cholesterol than those who eat less. But not all research agrees. Some research shows that eating foods with coconut flour can actually decrease cholesterol. The reason for the different results might relate to the type and amount of coconut eaten. Coconut contains coconut oil. Coconut oil is made up of saturated fat. So, eating large amounts of coconut might increase cholesterol due to its saturated fat content. But eating coconut in normal amounts probably isn’t a concern. And eating coconut flour is also probably safe, since coconut flour is processed to remove fats.
