A survey conducted at the state hospital Dante Pazzanese, a unit of the State Secretariat of Health of São Paulo reference centers, points out that most heart patients do not know the types of fats that are good for health. The study, conducted with 600 patients being treated at the institution, also reveals that 67% do not have a habit of reading food labels.

Among the types of fats that are harmful to health, trans and saturated are the best known and are considered bad for 81.5% of respondents. Among the types that do well, 55% of patients disregarded the unsaturated fat, on the contrary, it is recommended for good heart health.

Another very common misconception is about food sources of fat. As the wafer and filled with butter, which have been identified correctly as less healthy foods, mayonnaise was also considered a food rich in cholesterol and bad fats by most respondents, which is not true.

Mayonnaise has a good nutritional profile because it is a source of polyunsaturated fats, contains no trans fat and low cholesterol offers, explains Daniel Magnoni, MD, Division of Clinical Nutrition Dante Pazzanese and research coordinator.

In addition to the mayonnaise, other food erroneously indicated for 65.5% of patients as a source of cholesterol and 60% with excess fat was bad the ketchup, which is made from tomatoes, has no fat.

Through this research, it was revealed that most patients who need adequate nutrition because they deal with health problems like high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity and high cholesterol, do not know what are the healthiest types of fats or foods that have a more adequate nutritional. Thus, we see some contradictions at the intersection of the data and verify important points that need to be reinforced in the population, says Magnoni.
