Saturated are filled with hydrogen and is solid at room temperature. Double bonds in the hyrdrocarbon chain create either mono saturated fats (sinlge double bonds) or poly saturated (multi double bonds) which are liquid at room temp.
Saturated fats are most commonly found in animal fats such as meat, seafood,
poultry skin, egg yolks, and dairy products. Coconut, coconut oil, palm oil, and
palm kernel oil are plant products that are high in saturated fats. Monounsaturated
fats are found in canola oil, peanut oil, olive oil, peanuts, walnuts, almonds,
pistachios, and avocados. Polyunsaturated fats help lower cholesterol and
are found in salmon, fish oil, corn oil, safflower oil, and sunflower oil.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are derived from plant sources and are
considered the healthy fats. Omega-3 fatty acids fall under the polyunsaturated fats.
