Saturated FatsSaturated fats fall into the category of ‘bad, unhealthy fats’ and are known to cause high blood cholesterol and increase the risk of heart disease. This type of fat is found in many animal foods such as beef, veal, lamb, pork, poultry, butter, cream, milk, cheese and seafood.
Saturated fats are also found in some plant foods such as palm oil, palm kernel oil, cocoa butter and coconut oil. Chemically, saturated fats have no double bonds connecting the carbon atoms of the fatty acid chain and are saturated with hydrogen atoms.
