A type of unhealthy fat that is readily converted to LDL cholesterol and is thought to encourage production of arterial disease. Saturated fats tend to be solid or almost solid at room temperature. Among saturated fats are animal fats, dairy products, and such vegetable oils as coconut and palm oils. The American Heart Association recommends that we limit our saturated fat intake to below 7-10% of total calories. Those with coronary heart disease or an LDL cholesterol level over 100 mg/dL should limit themselves further.
