Monounsaturated fats are in rich abundance in Black pine nuts. In fact, health experts recommend that most of the fats you consume be monounsaturated as opposed to polyunsaturated. The difference between the two is that monounsaturated fats have just one unsaturated carbon bond, and polyunsaturated fats have at least more than one. The latter are not unhealthy, but they are less ideal than monounsaturated fats, which help reduce bad cholesterol and improve heart health.
