Foods high in saturated fats

I think everyone should be aware that eating saturated fat can raise the level of cholesterol in the blood and overtime this increases your chance of developing heart disease. So, I think everyone should be aware of the foods that are high in saturated fats, such as:

• Fatty cuts of meat and meat products such as sausages and pies
• Butter, ghee and lard
• Cream, soured cream and crème fraiche
• Full fat cheese
• Pastry
• Cakes and biscuits
• Some sweet and savoury snacks such as confectionery
• Coconut oil, coconut cream and palm oil
