Key:
SFA = Saturated fatty acids
MUFA = Monunsaturated fatty acids
PUFA = Polyunsaturated fatty acids

Based on decades of research by Ray Peat, PhD, FPS encourages consuming foods with the highest ratio of SFA to PUFA. The SFA:PUFA (S/P) ratio of common dietary fats is shown in the third chart on this page. On that chart, the fats appearing highest on the list are the most health protective.

The information in the charts below was compiled with the help of a government resource that is available in full by searching for the source provided on the documents. Eggs and dairy foods are not included in this chart because I could not locate the information from the same source on the internet.
