Why do eating fats play an important role in our diet? What are fat-soluble vitamins and what’s worth knowing about vitamin D in these? These questions are answered by Héder Éva, nutritionist.

Fats and oils play a vital role in nutrition, just like carbohydrates or proteins. Fat is basically energy, serving as a spare nutrient and essential for the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, as well as for hormone production and the functioning of the nervous system, and in many ways contribute to maintaining our body’s health. “15-30 percent of total daily calories have to come from fats to let the fat-soluble vitamins absorb and to make our body work properly” Héder Éva, dietician emphasizes.
