    Is all/most animal fat saturated fat?


    For example, is all/most of the visible white fat in the image below saturated fat?


    If it isn't, what is it?





    Thanks,

    Nick

    No, not all animal fat is saturated. A little less than half of the fat in a steak (for example) is monounsaturated. Most of the rest is saturated, but there is a small amount of polyunsaturated as well.


    My favorite cut, as an example -

    Land animal fat is mostly saturated and MUFA with bits of PUFA. Same as Human Fat (Lard and Human are both about 45/45/10 Sat/MUFA/PUFA). This will depend on what you eat. Fish has a higher % of PUFA, but it is still mostly Sat and MUFA. Although most fish in general are low fat (relative to land animals).


    Butter/Cream is an exception here as it is more saturated.
