polyunsaturated fats

Fatty Acids [Glossary]

Fats are made from fatty acids (FAs); generally they are put into three major groups, but each group has many different types of that type with it. The main groups are saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids; here more about the FAs in each one.

Types of fat

There are four types of natural fat, saturated, mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated and, less commonly, natural transfats; we also have unnatural transfats which are sadly far too common.
