Saturated fat contains triglycerides that consist only of saturated fatty acids. They are called "saturated" because there are no double bonds between the fatty acid chain and the carbon atoms, meaning the carbon atoms are fully filled or saturated with hydrogen atoms (unlike “unsaturated fats”). Keep reading for examples of saturated fat, saturated fatty acids and examples of foods with high amounts of saturated fat.
Acids and bases are everywhere. However, you are most likely to hear those terms used in chemistry. The difference between acids and bases has to do with how they ionize in water. Keep things crystal clear by breaking down the properties of acids vs. bases. See each different substance through real-world examples.
