Edible Oils

While consumption of small amounts of saturated fats is essential, excessive amounts of such fats has been shown to be correlated with coronary heart disease.

Oils that are particularly high in saturated fats include coconut, palm oil and palm kernel oil.

Oils with lower amounts of saturated fats, and higher amounts of unsaturated (preferably monounsaturated) fats, are generally healthier.
