Unsaturated fats

Unlike saturated fats, unsaturated fats are usually liquid at room as well as refrigerator temperatures. Unsaturated fats can be classified into monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, both of which can assist in lowering cholesterol levels.

Sources of unsaturated fats include avocados, olives, most tree nuts, vegetables oils as well as fatty fish such as salmon.
