For most foods that contain fat you'll see Total Fat content and Saturated, Trans Fat, Polyunsaturated, and Monounsaturated fats listed below that. Sometimes the amounts don't always add up. Total Fat could be 12g, Saturated Fat at 7g, and Trans Fat at 0g so there's 5g of fat unaccounted for. Can one assume the remaining fat is some kind of unsaturated fat? Are there "neutral" fats that aren't exactly saturated or unsaturated?

This is a slight misnomer because you definitely need a decent amount of saturated fat (it makes up every nerve ending in your body), but you get the idea!
