Matieres grasses play a crucial role in cooking and baking, as they add flavor, texture, and richness to dishes. While consuming excessive amounts of matieres grasses can be unhealthy, they are an essential part of a balanced diet in moderation. Choosing the right type of matieres grasses is key to optimizing health benefits, and many plant-based options such as avocado, nuts, and seeds are healthy alternatives to traditional animal fats.
