Calories from oils, sauces and dressings

Many nutritionists advise to reduce the consumption of oils, sauces and dressings, especially because their caloric content - and of fats - 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, so they are considered highly caloric condiments.

But their energy contribution is not just one of the most negative aspects of sauces. There are also other elements such as a high content of sugar and / or salt, 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 opposite side we have the oils, which can provide us with adequate healthy fats to maintain an adequate cardiovascular health. This is the case of olive oil, whose moderate consumption is advised daily, since it is a type of oil with a high content of healthy fatty acids.

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