... Despite their very different appearances at room temperature, some of them are not all that different, chemically, from liquid oils.As I've been saying for some time.
Lard, for example, contains less than 50 percent saturated fat and has nearly as much monounsaturated fat as canola oil. And it tastes infinitely better than canola oil.
Culinate gives us the skinny (pardon the expression) on solid fats. (Liquid oils were discussed previously here.)
