Calories from oils, sauces, and dressings

Who doesn’t like sauces, dressings, and oils? Find out how many calories the most consumed sauces or oils provide each day, so you know which one to choose.

Many nutritionists advise reducing the consumption of oils, sauces and dressings, especially since their caloric content – and fat – tends to be high. For example, in the particular case of sauces, we must bear in mind that these in turn can be made from a base of butter or oil, which is why they are considered highly caloric condiments.

But its energy contribution is not only one of the most negative aspects of sauces. There are also other elements such as a high sugar and / or salt content, which can have a very negative influence on the fact that they tend to be condiments that are not very suitable for daily consumption.

On the other hand, we have oils, which can provide us with adequate healthy fats to maintain adequate cardiovascular health. This is the case of olive oil, whose moderate consumption is recommended daily, since it is a type of oil with a high content of healthy fatty acids.

Therefore, since oils and sauces tend to significantly increase the caloric intake of dishes, if you are concerned about your diet, the most appropriate thing to do is to be clear about which ones provide more calories or not, to know if we can consume them or not. Take note.
