Plant oils, and some animal products, are high in both mono- and poly-unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats commonly used in cooking include canola, flaxseed, avocado, peanut, and olive oil. These fats are associated with a reduced risk for many conditions, including heart disease and stroke. Unsaturated fats lower bad cholesterol, blood pressure, and inflammation while providing nutrients that are essential for building and maintaining cells in the body. The DGA recommends replacing saturated fats with healthier unsaturated fats.
Trans fats are created through hydrogenation, a process that takes oil that is liquid at room temperature (unsaturated) and turns it into solid fat (saturated). These are commonly found in margarine and shortenings. Like saturated fats, trans fats also have the ability to raise blood cholesterol levels and increase the risk of heart disease. The DGA recommends avoiding trans fats.
