Hi there, does anyone know what other nutrients are in lamb fat apart from saturated, mono-unsaturated and poly-unsaturated fat?

I am referring the adipose tissue and not rendered ''tallow''. I get this free from my butcher and I am eating about 200g per day so I just wondered what else is in it apart from fat and if it's OK to consume this much on a daily basis. Thanks for your answers!

Not much in terms of vitamins and minerals, but plenty of energy and flavor. If you want nutrients then the best cuts are the organs and glands and then after that are the muscles. Fat tissue (except for brains which are both fatty and nutritious) is not too high in nutrients. Still tasty though.

The fat will quite likely help you to absorb nutrients from the other foods that you eat, so if you take that into account it is somewhat nutrient dense in a relative/synergistic way, as without it you may not absorb as many nutrients from your other foods.

A little bit of fat-soluble vitamins - Vitamins A, E, D, and K - probably, but not enough to get excited about. Fat is not a nutrient dense food.
