Both saturase and unsaturase fat will breakdown to acetyl CoA for energy.
I think the different is cholesteron's high content in unsaturase fat.
Another ideas ?

Um, usually, based on health journal that I've read..saturated fat or hydrogenised fat gives more LDL that is bad for our health compared to HDL which is good for our health.
Many of LDL is believed as arteriosclerosis maker and it's contained many in saturated fats.
In unsaturated fats, there are two groups of it..Plural-unsaturated fats and singular-unsaturated fats.
Singular-unsaturated fats, e.g. lecytin or Phosphaditylcholine has proven its ability to lower the amount of saturated fats in the blood vessels.

As for information, saturated fats are usually contained in snacks and fast of them.. :wink:
