Generally speaking ‘fats’ are mostly saturated hydrocarbon compounds. ‘Oils’, À on the other hand, do contain many CÀ À ÀC bonds and are said to be À ÀC bonds; they are ‘unsaturated’. Natural vegetable oils contain many CÀ À polyunsaturated. ‘Poly’ means many. These unsaturated bonds can have the effect of ‘mopping up’ oxidants made within the body, which can be harmful to cells. Most margarine is made from natural polyunsaturated oils and these are better for healthy living than the saturated fats in butter and cream.
