    Whether fat is saturated of unsaturated has to do with its chemical structure: whether or not there is room on the fat molecule for more hydrogen to bond to it.

    Saturated fats are those that have no room on the molecule for additional hydrogen: thus the term “saturated.”

    Unsaturated fats are fat molecules with double bonds which have room for additional hydrogen.
