UNSATURATED FAT

A kind of fatty acid found in food. This type of fat has at least one double (or triple) bond between carbon atoms, therefore the chain is not “saturated” with hydrogen atoms. That’s why they are liquid in room temperature. It is considered “healthier”, because it assists lower levels of LDL cholesterol, reduces inflammation, and builds stronger cell membranes. There are two main categories: monounsaturated and polyunsaturated
