Dietary fats

Fats are referred to in the plural because there is no one kind of fat. Fats are calm of the same three elements as carbohydrates-carbon, hydrogen and oxygen, However, fats have comparatively more carbon and hydrogen and less oxygen, thus supplying a higher fuel value of nine calories per gramme (versus four calories per gramme from carbohydrates and protein).
