Trans fat -- Do you really know what you eat?

Trans fat is found in margarine, and in vegetable shortenings. If you see the words "hydrogenated" or "partially hydrogenated oil" on the label, the product contains trans fat. Partially hydrogenated oil is in about 40 percent of the food at the grocery store, including some products most consumers regard as healthy. Almost every packaged, convenience food contains one or more sources of hydrogenated oils, including: most cereals, bread, cookies, crackers, chips, pies, french fries, pizzas, pop corn, peanut butter, cake frosting, candy, and ice cream. Food labeled "low in saturated fat," "cholesterol-free" or "made with 100 percent vegetable oil" can have so much trans fat that consumers who are focused on heart-healthy choices should avoid these like the plague. One study, by the Center for Science in the Public Interest, showed that foods with partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredient list contained 1 gram of hidden trans fat for each gram of saturated fat. That means some "Name Brand" chocolate chip cookies, for example, with 2 grams of saturated fat per serving also contain 2 additional grams of trans fat. Trans fat amounts aren't regulated at all, so manufacturers and fast food operators don't have to list it on nutrition labels. That means there's no easy way to know how much you're eating. All you can do is read labels and look for“partially hydrogenated oil”.

There are some words catch my eyes in the information: trans fat, hydrogenated oil, saturated fat, heart-healthy choice, nutrition. It could mean not much importance for a healthy he or she, but for someone who is taking care his or her body. A diet war caused by food is within our modern world. We have more food to choose, more fun to enjoy on having delicious bits. To name some I love: bread, cookies, chips, French fries, peanut butter, ice cream and so forth; oh my, how much unhealthy fat I gain in the intake.
