According to the NHS, foods high in saturated fat include:
- Meat pies, sausages and fatty meat
- Butter, lard and ghee
- Cream and hard cheese, like cheddar
- Cakes and biscuits
- Food that contains coconut oil or palm oil.
As the health body points out, you can still have foods that contain a healthier type of fat called unsaturated fat.
In fact, many unsaturated fats can be found in the Mediterranean diet, which has been consistently linked to heart health.
Mediterranean diet is typically high in vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts and seeds, and olive oil.
