Sat­u­rated

Sat­u­rated Fats come mainly from an­i­mal food prod­ucts and are solid at room tem­per­a­ture. Meat fat, lard, but­ter and solid short­en­ing are ex­am­ples of sat­u­rated fats. Palm and co­conut oils are also sat­u­rated fats. These types of fats are not de­sir­able, as they tend to raise our choles­terol level. 2

Un­sat­u­rated Un­sat­u­rated Fats are liq­uid at room tem­per­a­ture and come from plant oils such as peanut, olive, corn, sun­flower and canola. These are good fats as they tend to lower the level of choles­terol in the blood, but they also need to be lim­ited.
