Fatty Foods - the truth behind the fat in food


They are small and look harmless, but nuts contain a lot of hidden fat.

Answer this, how many grams of fat are there in 100 grams of macadamia nuts? Guess about 40 or 50 grams? Wrong! There are 73 grams--and that's a lot for something so little.

Other types of nuts that put up a good fight for the fat trap title: Brazil nuts weigh in with 67grams of fat, hazelnuts and peanuts are at the 60 and 50 grams mark, respectively. The light-weight of the group are cashews, which contain only 40 grams. 
Tip: The best advice we can give is to buy nuts in their shells. When you buy roasted nuts out of their shells they will usually have been cooked in fat.
