Fat Facts

1. The best oils are the ones least refined and pressed at low temperatures.

2. Oils should be stored in a cool dry place without exposure to oxygen or light. The refrigerator is ideal.

3. Fat-free diets lead to Essential Fatty Acid deficiency, which in turn leads to many serious health concerns.

4. Low-fat, high-sugar diets have a negative effect on mood, mental performance and behaviour in children and adults.

5. Omega 3 and 6 fats assist weight management by helping reduce fat production in the body, increase fat burning and metabolism, and shift the body from burning glucose for energy to burning fat.

6. Saturated fat is the most plentiful fat in the body. Because it is non-essential the body can produce it and we don’t require much from the diet. However, in modest amounts, it’s not harmful and is necessary for energy production.

7. In Canada, a product can claim to be trans fat-free if it contains less than 0.2g of trans fat per serving.

8. Nutrition labels can list 0 trans fats if the product contains less than 0.5g of trans fat per serving.
