    Alert about trans fats

    Trans fatty acids, also known as trans fat, is an
    artery-clogging fat that is formed when
    vegetable oils are hardened


    Trans fat is known to increase blood levels of LDL, or "bad"
    cholesterol, while lowering levels of HDL known as "good"
    cholesterol.



    While some foods like bakery items and fried
    foods are obvious sources of trans fat, other
    processed foods, such as cereals and waffles,
    can also contain trans fat. One tip to
    determine the amount of trans fat in a food is
    to
    " Read the ingredient label and look for
    shortening, hydrogenated or partially
    hydrogenated oil. The higher up on the list
    these ingredients appear, the more trans fat"


    1.Cookies, crackers, cakes, muffins, pie
    crusts, pizza dough, and breads such as
    hamburger buns

    2.Some stick margarine and vegetable
    shortening

    3.Pre-mixed cake mixes, pancake mixes, and
    chocolate drink mixes

    4.Fried foods, including donuts, French fries,
    chicken nuggets, and hard taco shells

    5.Snack foods, including chips, candy, and
    packaged or microwave popcorn

    6.Frozen dinners

    Carefully read nutrition labels
    and chose brands that don't use trans fats and
    are low in saturated fat

    Welcome Jeeva,

    Really trans fats are bad...They are the WORST of all fats...... But unfortunately it s found in most of the food items we buy

    It's essential that we check the amount of Trans fats in labels.....
