The Label Says... Saturated

  • What it does: Increases your risk for heart disease by raising LDL levels. It also increases HDL levels, but the net effect is still negative.
  • Where it comes from: The main source in the American diet is cheese, followed by beef, whole milk, tropical oils such as coconut and palm, and ice cream.
  • How much you need: Limit it to 10 percent of your daily calories. (For someone eating 2,000 calories, that would be 20 grams.) One half-cup serving of premium vanilla ice cream has 11 grams.
