Saturated Fat In Bananas

Quote  |  Reply
Hi. :)

I had a banana and a pear so far today and my fat gram was at 1.

I thought that was curious, so I looked more closely at the nutrition info.

I was surprised to see that there was saturated fat in a banana.

I thought saturated fat came from dairy products. Apparently I was wrong.

can anyone explain this to me?

While fat and saturated fats are mainly found in dairy foods and heavily processed foods, they are also found naturally, in usually small amounts, in many wholesome, good for you foods. It doesn't mean those foods are bad; they contain so many nutrients that it cancels out that one little fat gram.

Is It Possible to Go Natural?
The side effects of allergy medications keep some people from using them. Natural remedies can be a great alternative, but some are more effective than others.
