What kind of fats are there?

The general conception of fats is that they are unhealthy. It is important to realise that not all fats are the same and even have an essential function in your body. Saturated fats are frequent in animal products such as meat and dairy, but also in an unhealthy way such as cookies, pastries and snacks. Unsaturated fats have the known quality of being good for the cholesterol level. These fats occur in products such as fish, seeds and nuts. A healthy lifestyle includes predominantly unsaturated fats and a small quantity of saturated fats.

What are examples of food fats?

Fats come in countless shapes and sizes, ranging from being good for the body and very bad for your health. Especially unsaturated fats are known for their positive effects. However, saturated fats can definitely play a role in a healthy diet.

Especially products such as salmon, nuts, olive oil, avocado and seeds are known for their good fat profile. Because it can be hard to eat enough of these every day, it can be helpful to take these fats in supplement form in the range of Omega-3 soft gels, MCT-oil, Perfect Cooking Spray or natural peanut butter.
