All fats are not the same

I came across this list and I thought I would post it, just for fun.

Chicken fat: 2.7g polyunsaturated; 5.7g monounsaturated; 3.8g saturated.

Duck fat: 1.7g polyunsaturated; 6.3g monounsaturated; 4.3g saturated.

Goose fat: 1.4g polyunsaturated; 7.3g monounsaturated; 3.5g saturated.

Turkey fat: 3g polyunsaturated; 5.5g monounsaturated; 3.8g saturated.

And for reference…

Olive oil: 1.4g polyunsaturated; 9.9g monounsaturated; 1.9g saturated.

Butter: 0.4g polyunsaturated; 3g monounsaturated; 7.3g saturated.

Lard: 1.4g polyunsaturated; 5.8g monounsaturated; 5g saturated

Info from these two posts.

Thank the Lard

  1. Wow, thanks for the stats! We rendered our own lard – or tallow, I guess, since it was beef fat – last New Year’s Day. I was going to use it for soap making but haven’t gotten around to it yet. So it’s still sitting in the freezer. Just may have to break it out & use it in place of butter sometimes!
