Saturated fats are fat molecules that have no double bonds between carbon molecules because they are saturated with hydrogen molecules. Saturated fats are typically solid at room temperature.  Saturated fats occur naturally in many foods; the majority come mainly from animal sources, including meat and dairy products. Natural oils that are high in saturated fats include coconut oil and palm oil.
