A portion of fish and chips can deliver as much as 50g of saturated fat — more than twice the 20g recommended limit,

and its total fat content can be as much as 90g, way above the 70g threshold for a whole day.

A cheeseburger with bacon and fries can deliver a whopping 84g of total fat and 37%of saturated fat in the worst case, a new study by the Food Safety Authority of Ireland (FSAI) has found.

In particular, they should avoid too much saturated fats which can send cholesterol levels soaring and put you at risk of a heart attack, while too much fat of any type in your diet can make you obese and unhealthy. The FSAI’s chief specialist in food science, Dr Wayne Anderson, called on fast food outlets to provide healthier meals for customers.

People should eat no more than 20g of saturated fat in a day — anything more than 10g in a single meal is considered a high level. The daily threshold for total fat is 70g, and foods containing more than 35g are considered high fat.
