Fat is an important part of our diet; it is one of the nutrients that make up the foods we eat. Fat is a nutrient. It is crucial for normal body function and without it we could not live. Not only does fat supply us with energy, it also makes it possible for other nutrients to do their jobs. Fats, which consist of a wide group of compounds, are usually soluble in organic solvents and insoluble in water. Our bodies require small amounts of ‘good fat’ to function and help prevent disease. The wrong type of fat can cause serious health complaints. There are different forms of fat and they function in different ways, like provide energy, storage of energy on body, provide protection of soft organs, to regulate body temperature, save protein sources of fat soluble vitamins. Unsaturated fats are generally considered better for us than saturated fats.
