  • Published 2 years ago

Since the 1980s there's been a blast in low-fat products as the message got out that to improve our health, especially heart health, we needed to reduce the amount of saturated fat in our diets. This means cutting back on full fat dairy foods, red meat and certain processed foods. It's true that fat supplies more than twice the calories per gram of carbohydrates, and saturated fat is the type of fat primarily responsible for clogging our arteries and increasing cholesterol levels. But, as we came to terms with this unpalatable fact, the food industry got to work replacing the animal fats in their products with un-saturated vegetable oils.
