Human health through fats and oils:

  • Fat is an important ingredient of human diet along with carbohydrates, proteins and vitamins. 
  • The functional role of fat in the human diet is manifold. Fat is one of the most concentrated source of energy. One gram of fat gives 9 kcal of energy while carbohydrates and proteins provide only 4 kcal of energy per gram. I.e. fats provide calorie density to the diet. 
  • Secondly, there are many essential nutrients and vitamins which are fat soluble. Fats are essential in the diet for the absorption and mobilization of fat-soluble vitamins such as vitamin A, vitamin E and fat-soluble antioxidants. Thus fat works as a vehicle to carry the fat-soluble vitamins, nutrients and antioxidants in the body. 
  • Thirdly, vegetable oils are the only source of essential fatty acids to the body. Essential fatty acids (EFA) are those fatty acids, which the body cannot synthesize and need to be supplied through diet. EFA's are the precursors for a group of chemically related compounds, known as prostaglandins that are synthesized in the body from EFA. If EFA is not supplied through diet to the body, the body cannot synthesize prostaglandins. Prostaglandins play a key role in regulating many physiological processes in the body, such as controlling blood pressure, vascular damage in the brain and the heart, preventing blood clot in the arteries, lowering cholesterol, uterine contractions during child birth and menstrual cycles, inflammation and other conditions. 
  • Fourthly, fat also helps in raising High Density Lipids (HDL) the so-called good cholesterol. Low-fat diets can result in reduction of HDL cholesterol. 
  • Fifthly, fat in the diet imparts certain textural qualities, taste and palatability to the food. Fats and oils are integral lubricants of foods in two ways: through use as release agents as a part of the cooking process and as a lubricant during mastication (chewing). Fats and oils modify flavour release and improve palatability. Humans are naturally attracted towards fatty foods. 
  • Quality fats and oils are also essential for transporting all vitamins, minerals and hormones in and out of every one of the body cells.
  • The right amount and types of high-quality fats and oils do not drive up one's insulin level, create insulin resistance and make one fat, as do sugar and carbohydrates.  
  • They also do not rob the body of minerals, as does eating sugars and many starches as well.  Last but not least, fats and oils make our food taste good.
