Grasa saturada

La grasa saturada puede elevar el colesterol en la sangre y puede ponerlo a usted en riesgo de sufrir cardiopatía y accidente cerebrovascular. Usted debe evitar o limitar cualquier tipo de alimentos que sean ricos en grasa saturada. Las fuentes de grasa saturada abarcan productos lácteos de leche entera, como queso, helado y mantequilla. Las grasas animales como la carne de res, la carne de cerdo o el pollo, pero no la mayoría de los pescados, también son una fuente de grasas saturadas. Las fuentes vegetales de grasa saturada abarcan el coco y los aceites de palma. Al mirar la etiqueta de un alimento, préstele mucha atención al porcentaje de grasa saturada.
