Discussion Fats and fatty acids are essential for good human health. Saturated fats have hydrogen pairs linked to each carbon on the carbon backbone. They are solid or semi-solid at room temperature. Common examples are butter, lard, or hardened vegetable shortening. They are linked to higher cholesterol and triglycerides and only a small amount of them are recommended to be consumed in the diet. Unsaturated fats have one or more hydrogen atoms missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature. Monounsaturated fatty acids have one hydrogen pair that is missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature but start to become solid when placed into the refrigerator. Common examples are Canola oil, olive oil, peanut oil and avocados. They lower total and LDL cholesterol and increase HDL cholesterol. Polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFAs) have two or more hydrogen pairs that are missing from the carbon backbone. They are liquid at room temperature and when cooled. Common examples are corn oil, soybean oil, and the seeds and oil made from safflower, sesame, and sunflower seeds. They lower total and LDL cholesterol but also lower HDL production. Omega-3 fatty acids are a type of polyunsaturated fats derived from eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). They are commonly found in fatty fish such as mackerel, albacore tuna, sardines, salmon, herring, anchovies, sardines and lake trout. They can also be found in Canola oil, s...
