Choosing Fats

When you are deciding which type of fat to buy, remember that unsaturated fats are the healthiest, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Good choices include margarines that are soft, light and free of trans fats; and oils such as corn, canola, olive, safflower, soybean and sunflower. Stick margarine contains trans fat, which should be limited in the diet. Butter, solid shortening, lard and fatback contain saturated fat.
