Fatty Foods - the truth behind the fat in food
  
Nuts

Nuts


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

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

The other types of nuts put up a good fight for the fat trap title: Brazil nuts weigh in with 67g fat, hazelnuts and peanuts are at the 60 and 50gram mark. The light-weight of the group are cashews which contain only 40grams.
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.
