SAC Position Paper – Fats, Soyfoods and Heart Health: Making Sense of the Evidence

For many years scientists have recognised the important role diet plays in maintaining a healthy heart. Much of the focus has been placed on reducing dietary saturated fat – also thought of as ‘unhealthy’ fats – and this still remains a key recommendation today. However new research has provided a much better understanding of the effects of different dietary fats on heart health and so the simple message of ‘reducing saturated fat’ may no longer be appropriate; replacing saturated fats for polyunsaturated fat (PUFA) seems important for reducing heart disease risk.
