All fatty acids are made up from chains of carbon, hydrogen and oxygen atoms. What differentiates the various fatty acids lie in the molecular configuration, producing differing health effects between fats.
Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats are known as “omegas”. There are three types of omega fatty acids: omega-3, omega-6 and omega-9. Omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids are two types of polyunsaturated fat. They are known as essential fatty acids because the body cannot produce them. Omega-9 fatty acids are from a family of monounsaturated fats that also are beneficial when obtained in food. Omega-9 Canola and Sunflower Oils are uniquely high in omega-9 (monounsaturated) fatty acid.
Omega-3, Omega-6 and Omega-9 fatty acids all influence different functions within the body. Research evidence has clearly shown that incorporating balanced proportions of both essential and non-essential fatty acids are vital for maintaining overall heart health and general wellness.
