What is Saturated Fat?

Saturated fat is the least healthy of all fats/lipids. Common sources of saturated fat include animal fats, butter, lard, red meat, cheese, cream and milk. Certain vegetable oils, like coconut and palm oil are also high in saturated fat. Saturated fat is solid at room temperature.

It’s worth remembering that the body can manufacture its own saturated fat so you don’t actually need to include any saturated fat in your diet.

Saturated fat is linked to higher levels of cholesterol, heart disease, strokes and breast cancer. For the sake of your health and weight it is best avoided.
