A type of fat that comes from plants and vegetables and is liquid at room temperature. It includes olive oil, canola oil, peanut oil and avocados. This type of fat can help lower blood cholesterol levels.
Fats that have a positive effect on the good cholesterol levels. These fats are usually high in the essential fatty acids and may have antioxidant properties. Sources of these fats are fish oils, virgin olive oil, canola oil, and flaxseed oil.
Type of fat found in foods such as olive oil, walnut oil, rapeseed oil, and in some margarines and spreads. Monounsaturated fats can help lower LDL levels but do not lower HDL levels.
Especially abundant in olive oil and canola oil. Monounsaturated fats slightly lower total cholesterol; this action may be due to their phytosterols.
An essential fatty acid (EFA) that seems to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. This is considered a type of "good" fat. Olive oil, and canola oil are two examples of monounsaturated fats. You need approximately 2% of your daily calories as EFA's.
These fats are liquids at room temperature. These fats are also good for you because they donâ€™t change your HDL (good cholesterol) levels but do lower your LDL (bad cholesterol levels). Look for products that have these fats if you want to stay heart-healthy. Monosaturated fats are found in olive and canola oil.
(a fatty acid) are fats found in vegetable and nut oils, such as canola, peanut and olive oil. Mono- refers to these fat having one chemical bond in the chemical structure that is not completely hydrogenated as are other bonds in the structure. These fats melt at lower temperatures and are not as hard as saturated fats.
Fats that are liquid at room temperature and are found in vegetable oils such as olive and canola oil. These fats help lower blood cholesterol levels.
Fat molecules which contain only one double bond and are therefore better fats; examples are olive and canola oils. Obesity. The presence of excess body fat, best determined by calculating Body Mass Index.
fats that lower LDL (Low Density Lipoprotein) when substituted for saturated fats, typical sources are olive and canola oils.
The backbones of fat molecules are long chains of carbon atoms attached to one another by either single or double bonds. A single bond is made up of two electron shared by two atoms, while a double bond is composed of four electrons. Saturated fat molecules have only single bonds. Monounsaturated fats have one double bond, the remainder being single bonds. Olive oils contain relatively high levels of monounsaturated fats, which scientists credit for the cardio protective role that olive oils may play in the so-called Mediterranean diet.
An unsaturated fat found in canola, olive and peanut oils, and avocados.
fats primarily found in olive oil and canola oil, nuts (eg. peanuts), and avocados. These fats may help lower blood cholesterol levels.
dietary fats, such as olive oil or canola oil, that do not seem to have any affect on blood cholesterol.
These fats lower LDL, and leave HDL levels the same. An example of monounsaturated fats are olive oil and canola oil.
An essential fatty acid (EFA) that seems to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease. This is considered a type of 'good' fat. Olive oil, and canola oil have this in them. You need approxiamately 2% of your daily calories as EFA's.
Fatty acids, abundant in olive, peanut, sesame, and canola oils, in which one pair of hydrogen atoms in each molecule has been replaced by a double bond.
A type of unsaturated fat (liquid at room temperature) that has one spot available on the fatty acid for the addition of a hydrogen atom; moderate intake is associated with a lower risk for cardiovascular disease; Example, oleic acid in olive oil; generally considered to be a "healthy" fat.
dietary fats, such as olive oil or canola oil, that don't seem to have any affect on blood cholesterol.
Fatty acids that are not “saturated” with hydrogen and contain one double bond in the carbon chain. Monounsaturated fats are typically liquid at room temperature, but solidify when refrigerated
When used as a replacement for heart-harmful saturated fats, these fats can help lower LDL cholesterol and raise HDL cholesterol. These fats are found in olive oil, olives, canola oil, avocados, peanuts, almonds, cashews, pecans, pistachios, and peanut butter. Monounsaturated fats are also high in calories, so they should be used in moderation.
dietary fats, such as olive oil or canola oil, that tend to lower LDL cholesterol levels, and some studies suggest that it may do so without also lowering HDL cholesterol levels.
Fats that help to lower blood cholesterol if used in place of saturated fats. Healthy sources include avocados as well as olive, peanut, sesame, and canola oils. Like all fats, monosaturated fats are high in calories. If you increase the amount of monosaturated fats you eat, be mindful of how much food you eat overall, so you don't gain weight.
Fats found in plant oils such as olive, canola, and peanut oil that are liquid at room temperature but harden in the refrigerator.
F ats can be classified as saturated, monounsaturated or polyunsaturated. Monounsaturated fats are a better choice than saturated fats, but polyunsaturated fats have the least amount of saturation. Fats play a role in health and the saturated versions tend to raise blood cholesterol. A popular monounsaturated fat is olive oil.
The "good fat". As a general rule, unsaturated fats are liquid at room temperature. Unsaturated fats are believed to lower blood cholesterol levels and tests have shown them to significantly reduce the relative risk for invasive breast cancer as well as strokes. They have been shown to lower the oxidation of LDL ( low density lipoprotein) cholesterol, lower the triglyceride levels, and raising the level of HDL ( High Density Lipoprotein) cholesterol. They are found at high levels in vegetable oils (olive oil, safflower oil, etc.) A fat that contains a carbon-carbon double bond, or a fat containing unsaturated fatty acids; such a fatty acid has double or triple covalent bonds and is thus able to add more atoms. find all NHC pages containing: monounsaturated fats
Fatty acids, abundant in olive, peanut, sesame, and canola oils (see High Cholesterol).
Liquid at room temperature, monunsaturated fats include olive oil, peanut oil, and canola oil and are also found in cashews, peanuts, many other nuts, and avocados.
