What are polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs)?
Polyunsaturated fats (PUFAs) are a type of dietary fats. There are two main forms of PUFAs - omega-3 and omega-6. PUFAs can be found in fish, some oils, and a range of nuts and seeds. Although PUFAs offer some health benefits, they are high in energy, so it's recommended that you consume them in small amounts.
