The body can absorb 10-15 grams of fat per hour; however, the speed of fat digestion and subsequent absorption depends on several factors including a person's usual fat intake, the size and composition of the meal and whether the digestive capacity is impaired by disease or medications. Over the course of one day, a healthy person can absorb up to 600 grams of fat with 95% efficiency.
