Risks With Saturated Fatty Acids

Current dietary guidelines recommend consumption of saturated fatty acids to below 10 percent of total daily energy consumption. These guidelines are based on previous studies. Previous studies indicated mixed views on the association between consumption of saturated fatty acids and risks to coronary heart disease. Current analysis based on two cohort studies done by researchers shows eating foods containing high levels of saturated fatty acids increases the risk of coronary heart disease in adults having no chronic diseases. Researchers analyzed data of 73,147 women (data from the Nurses Health Study, 1984 to 2012) and 42,635 men (data from the Health Professionals Follow-Up Study, 1986 to 2010) and came to above conclusion. Saturated fatty acids are

  • Palmitic acid
  • Lauric acid
  • Myristic acid
  • Stearic acid

All saturated fatty acids exist in similar food sources and not possible to recommend any particular saturated fatty acids. Researchers recommend replacing saturated fatty acids with unsaturated fats. The lead author of the study is Geng Zong PhD from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, Boston and co-author of the study is Frank Hu MD PhD. The study findings were published in BMJ.

Saturated fatty acids : Each fat molecule is a combination of one glyceride and three fatty acids molecules. Generally, animal fat is saturated and plant and fish fat are unsaturated. Saturated fats have a higher melting point compared with unsaturated fats. That is at normal temperature, saturated fats are solids and unsaturated fats are liquids. Studies show that saturated fats are unhealthy and consumption of saturated fat increases cholesterol levels in the bloodstream. But previous studies show no significant association between consumption of saturated fats and heart attacks. Health risks associated with saturated fats are controversial. Each gram of saturated fat gives 9 calories of energy. Foods with high levels of saturated fat are

  • Dairy products such as butter, cream, cheese and whole milk dairy
  • Vegetable oils such as coconut oil and palm kernel oil
  • Fast products such as pizza, sausage and dairy desserts
  • Fatty and processed meat, lard (prepared from pig fat)
