There are good fats and bad fats – nutrition guidelines suggest that we should choose more mono and polyunsaturated fats, like those found in vegetable oils, soft, non-hydrogenated margarine and mayonnaise, instead of saturated fats like those found in butter and cream. Trans fat, found in hydrogenated oils and shortening, should be avoided as much as possible.
