Low-fat foods are those low-calorie products that contain few calories and can also be called light foods.
Like light foods and products, there are also other types of foods that can be indicated for those who are following a weight loss diet in order to lose weight.
They are known as low-fat foods, and although they are also often called light foods, many of the companies in the sector tend to also advertise these types of products as low-fat (or supposedly low-calorie) foods.
Those products considered as light or low in fat, usually have 30% fewer calories than the same version of the product called “normal”.
This means that this type of food does not have more than 3. Grams of fat in 100 grams of product (in the case of solid foods), and not more than 1.5 grams per 100 ml. (in the case that they are liquid).
This differs from those foods that do not have fat, and therefore are sold as fat-free foods, since these types of products should not contain more than 0.5% fat per 100 gr. (or 100 ml.).
What are the best fat-free foods?
As you may have already thought, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables and fresh vegetables stand out above all. These foods are characterized not only by being low in fat, but also because they have a low caloric content, and yet they are extremely rich in essential nutrients for our body (vitamins, minerals, fiber, water …).
It also highlights fish and lean meats, which also provide us with interesting properties and virtues from a nutritional point of view, and whose consumption is recommended every week within a healthy and balanced diet.
Nor should we forget about pasta and whole grains, which not only stand out for their low fat content, but also for their high fiber content, ideal for preventing constipation and various cancers such as colon.
