Fat Sources

October 12, 2009


There were a lot of great questions in response to the last post.  Starting tomorrow, I will give more complete answers to those questions.  Today however, this post touches upon a question about which foods contain the omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.  Here’s an incomplete list of food sources in which these oils can be found. Sources of omega-3 oils are flax, hemp seed, canola, soy bean, walnut, and dark-green leaves.  In addition, many types of fish, including salmon, trout, mackerel, sardines, and other cold water marine animals are rich sources of omega-3 fatty acids. Sources of omega-6 oils are safflower, sunflower, hemp, soybean, walnut, pumpkin, sesame, and flax.  Also, meats and other animal products contain omega-6 fatty acids. Darryl
