Oils & Fats Market Research Reports & Industry Analysis

It has been the longstanding belief of the majority of consumers that fats are bad and to be avoided. Individuals with high cholesterol, various heart conditions, and family histories of coronary artery disease are told to go on a 'low fat' diet, avoiding all forms of fat to the greatest extent possible. When aiming to lose weight the typical individuals is to begin and low fat or not fat diet. A burgeoning industry and specialty grocery stores exist with products claiming to be 'low-fat' or even better, 'no-fat'. The truth is that both good and bad fats exist. While there is no doubt that most Americans have entirely too many fats (of the bad variety) in their diets, avoiding fats entirely is not as effective as changing the types of fats we consume, so say most nutritionists. Different kinds of oils and fats include: Monounsaturated: 'Good' fats that are mainly found in plant sources, such as nuts, avocados and olive, peanut and canola oils. These facts are liquid at room temperature. Polyunsaturated: These fats include the healthy omega-3 fatty acids. They are found in plant oils such as safflower, sunflower, corn, flaxseed and canola oils, as well as in seafood. Polyunsaturated fats are either liquid or soft at room temperature. Essential fatty acids such as alpha-linolenic and linoleic acid are also in the polyunsaturated group. These types of fats are necessary for the creation of cell walls and hormones in the body. Saturated: These fats are found mostly in animal products. Red meat, poultry, cheese, butter and other dairy products are the main sources. Plant products like palm, coconut and palm kernel oil are also saturated fats. Saturated Fats are solid at room temperature. Trans: Trans fats are formed when unsaturated vegetable oils are hydrogenated (or partially hydrogenated) and become more solid and more stable. Hydrogen atoms are added to the oils. Trans-fats include margarine and shortening and are found in crackers, cookies, doughnuts, frozen pie crusts, deep-fried foods, and foods with chocolate coatings.
