Is vegetable fat always healthier?

  1. Liquid vegetable fats contain less saturated fats than animal fats and are therefore healthier. In addition, vegetable oils contain more healthy unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fat lowers the bad cholesterol in your blood and thus reduces your risk of cardiovascular disease. This does not apply to solid vegetable fats, such as coconut fat and vegetable margarine in a wrapper. Examples of vegetable fats with a lot of unsaturated fat are olive oil, sunflower oil, low-fat margarine and margarine from a tub and frying fat and margarine from a squeeze bottle. Vegetable fat with good unsaturated fats can be recognized if it is soft or liquid at room temperature.
