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 :)
