Food Facts: Good vs. Bad Fats
For  years, we've heard that a low-fat diet is the key to losing weight, managing cholesterol and preventing health problems. As a result, we've learned to associate all fats with unhealthy eating.

American Quality Foods knows cutting out all fats isn't the answer. Fat does not make us fat. In fact, good fats are essential to our health.

Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats and omega-3 lower cholesterol, reduce your risk of coronary heart disease and support overall health. Healthy fats play a huge role in helping you manage your moods, stay on top of your mental game, fight fatigue and even control your weight. Examples include canola, peanut, olive, sunflower, corn and soybean oils, plus avocado, nuts and seeds.

The consumption of saturated fats and trans fats increases the risk of coronary heart disease by raising levels of LDL cholesterol and lowering levels of "good" HDL cholesterol. Trans fatty acids, particularly hydrogenated shortening, has also been associated with increased risk of other chronic health problems including cancer, diabetes and obesity.

American Quality Foods helps our customers make healthier choices by replacing the bad fats often used in desserts with good fats that promote health and well-being. We've eliminated trans fats from our delicious, healthy desserts. We've also formulated our mixes so all you add is water and/or low-fat milk.
