Guía de etiquetas en los alimentos para los dulces

Las grasas saturadas se encuentran en productos animales como la mantequilla, el queso, la leche entera, el helado, la crema y las carnes grasosas, al igual que en algunos aceites vegetales como el aceite de coco, de palma y de semillas de palma.

Consumir demasiadas grasas saturadas es uno de los mayores factores de riesgo para la enfermedad cardíaca. Una dieta alta en este tipo de grasas hace que una sustancia suave y cerosa llamada colesterol se acumule en las arterias. Demasiada grasa también incrementa el riesgo de enfermedad cardíaca debido a su alto contenido calórico, que aumenta la probabilidad de volverse obeso (otro factor de riesgo para la enfermedad cardíaca y algunos tipos de cáncer).
