California Walnut Commission wants everyone to join #TeamGoodFat
CINCINNATI (WKRC) - The California Walnut Commission has launched a new campaign called #TeamGoodFat.
It's designed to help everyone understand that even though walnuts and some other foods are high in fat, they have a good kind of fat.
The foods that have good fat are walnuts, salmon and avocados to name a few.
The commission launched the campaign after they surveyed people about fats and found almost everyone was worried about fat intake and don't understand there is a difference in the kind of fats in the aforementioned foods compared to the fat some baked goods or fried foods contain.
Good fats can help lower bad cholesterol, rather than staying in the body and depositing in your arteries.
The fats in the good foods are transported out of the body and they help lower bad cholesterol and raise the good kind.
