If it's not saturated fat or trans fat, is it "good" fat?

Asked by dxs (11704 points ) July 14th, 2014

I was buying mayo the other day at the store. I looked at the nutrition label and it had 11g of fat for 1 tablespoon! However, only 2g of that was from saturated fat. I know that saturated fats should be avoided although some of it is good, but what could the other 9g of fat be? Is it all of the good mono- and polyunsaturated fats or are there other fats?
