IS it Scientific to add Olive oil or sunflower oil to eternal milk feeding ?

If you you want to increase calorie density, there are some who add MCT (medium chain triglyceride) oil. MCT oil is available but costly. So one very cheap and effective alternative is to use purified/refined coconut oil. Coconut oil contains mainly MCT .
