SATURATED FATTY ACIDS are a type of fatty acids characterized by the absence of double bonds between carbon atoms in their hydrocarbon chains. Therefore, they have only single bonds, which gives them “saturated” properties. Fatty acids are mainly found in animal products. They are present in such as meat, butter, lard, fatty dairy products or eggs. Also in some vegetable oils, such as coconut oil or palm oil. Saturated fatty acids are one of the three basic types of fatty acids (along with monounsaturated and polyunsaturated). They are essential for the proper functioning of the body, but their consumption should be moderate.
