Food industry reduces trans fat content
According to a new report fears about more trans fat in food stuffs at supermarket can be put at a side as compared to earlier, less trans fat is being found in eatables now. The food industry is substituting the bad with better-for-you fats, a new report suggests.
About 83 reformulated products from restaurants and grocery stores were chcked for their fat content by researchers and they found that most had no more saturated fat than before.
In April, U. S. News contributor Katherine Hobson wrote, “All fats are not alike in their effects on blood cholesterol levels, which can affect heart disease risk. Saturated fat, for example, generally increases levels of LDL, or bad cholesterol. Trading saturated fats for polyunsaturated fats, the omega-3 fatty acids found in certain fish and the omega-6 fatty acids in vegetable oils such as safflower and soybean oils, does seem to offer a heart benefit.”
Experts state that consuming about five grams of trans fat every day would up triglyceride levels and elevated cholesterol, both risk factors for cardiovascular disease. This amount would also increase the chances of ischemic heart disease by 25 per cent.
