The basic building block of "fat" are fatty acids. Cis is a term used in chemistry and other sciences. Below is the definition of cis from Answers.com cis-
- On this side: cisatlantic.
- Having a pair of identical atoms or groups on the same side of a plane that passes through two carbon atoms linked by a double bond. Used of a geometric isomer: cis-2-butene.

There are many foods that contain CSI-fats. For monounsaturated cis-fats, the foods include: avocados, canola oil, eggs, cashews, ground beef, bacon and olives. For polyun…saturated cis-fats, they would include: flaxseed, pine nuts, salmon, smelt, walnuts and soybeans.

Most trans fats are the product of hydrogenated oils while cis fats are always found naturally. Because trans fats have a different atomic structure then cis fats, they ar…e not metabolized properly by the human body. Additionally, trans fats are more prone to adversely affecting health.
Examples of cis-fats include monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. Foods with cis-fts can help to decrease the risk of heart disease and lower blood pressure.
Nature creates a number of fats with double bonds. To illustrate, take two sheets of paper. Draw two circles about an inch big and about 2 inches apart on each sheet leaving a… little distance between them. Now, draw parallel lines from the top to the bottom of the sheets of the paper touching the outsides of the circles. Now You have a double bond. We want to break that double bond. On one sheet draw two circles on the same side as the circles between the lines. and erase part of the line between the circles. on the same side. You have cis fat. On the other sheet, draw one circle on one side of the circle on top and another circle on the opposite side of the circle on the bottom. Now change the lines so that the line is on the other side of the circle on the top from where you put the circle and it goes to the other side from where you put the circle on the bottom. You will have one line. You now have trans fat. Trans means the other side. When nature partially hydrogenates fat, she makes it cis fat. Nature does not make trans fat. (Man can force cows to make trans fat in feed lots). Manufacturers have only been able to make cis fats for the last 60 years.

Trans fats are hydrogenated unsaturated fats and they are supposed to be the worst fats there are for your health. Unsaturated fats are healthy fats and saturated fats and tra…ns fats are unhealthy fats. Trans fats are often added to processed foods to extend the shelf life. There are no such fats as cis fats. There are certainly cis fatty acids and trans fatty acids and the difference between the two is in the hydrogen atoms positions and one could be regarded as an isomer of the other. All fats are basically triglycerides which means glycerol triesterified with 3 fatty acids.
When a double bond is formed between two carbons, each carbon has a hydrogen atom attached either above or below it. In cis fats, the hydrogens are both on the same sides of t…he carbons involved in the double bond. In trans fats, the hydrogens are found on opposite sides of the carbons involved in the double bond. The arrangement of trans fats is more linear and allows them to "pack together" in certain areas of the body. This can contribute to cardiovascular disease.

Cis fats would have a higher melting point due to tighter packing between molecules, as the chains would be unbent. Trans fats would have kinks in the fatty acid chain and thi…s would hinder molecular packing, thus making it looser and would subsequently liquefy more easily Trans fats are non polar while Cis fats are polar. Cis fats have strong inter molecular attractions. So melting point of cis fats are higher than trans fats.
