Fat has a lot of negative connotation when it comes to issues concerning health, food and diets. However, it remains an important ingredient for the body.
Fats may either be unsaturated or saturated.
Unsaturated fats are oils — the kind that are fluid at room temperature while saturated fats are solid at room temperature.
