Beige Adipose Tissue

This kind of fat can be described as the child of white and brown fat. It is found within white fat but displays many of the beneficial qualities of brown fat. White fat contains stromal vascular cells that help to shift the structure and function of the white fat cell to that of a brown fat cell. The amount of brown and beige fat tissue one has inversely correlates with body mass index.
