Polyunsaturated FatsPolyunsaturated fats fall into the category of ‘good, healthy fats’ and are known to reduce cholesterol levels and lower risk of heart disease. They are found in grains, soybeans, fish and seafood such as salmon, halibut, mackerel and herring, and can also be found in oils such as sunflower and safflower and some nuts.
Chemically, polyunsaturated fats are fat with more than one double-bonded carbon and contain 9 calories per gram. A healthy amount of polyunsaturated fats for a person consuming 2,000 calories a day is around 25 grams.
Of course, moderation holds true here as well. It is important to consume these fats in moderation. As with anything, overconsumption can have negative effects on health.
