I am allergic to coconut

I was wondering if I could substitute Babassu oil for coconut oil. Coconuts oils INS value is 248 and Babassu is 234. I am having a hard time finding recipes without coconut oil.


Babassu oil is definitely a great substitute for Coconut oil. You will have to run any recipe in which you replace an oil through a lye calculator to get the correct amount of lye needed.
