Most of us have a love/hate relationship with saturated fat. We like the way it tastes in food and we know too much isn’t good for our health. In the quest for answers, I was recently interviewed in an article.
- Some saturated fat in the diet is just fine
- Saturated fats from different foods (e.g., dairy, beef, plant) have different health properties
We are learning more about individual fats, but we don’t eat individual fats, we eat food. So continue to eat food and be selective about where you get your saturated (solid) fat.
