Trans Fatty Acids ?

So, you’ve heard about all the buzz surrounding Trans Fatty Acids, but what does it all mean?

The new FDA rules allow consumers to make healthier food choices that could lower their consumption of trans fat as part of a heart-healthy diet. Scientific reports have confirmed the relationship between trans fat and an increased risk of coronary heart disease.
What ARE trans fatty acids?
A: Trans fatty acids (or "trans fat") are fats found in foods such as vegetable shortening, some margarines, crackers, candies, baked goods, cookies, snack foods, fried foods, salad dressings and many processed foods.
Q: Aren't ALL Fats Bad?
A: No. There are "good" fats and "bad" ones, just like there's good and bad blood cholesterol. Saturated fats and trans fat have bad effects on cholesterol levels. Polyunsaturated fats and monounsaturated fats (such as olive oil, canola oil, soybean oil, and corn oil) have good effects.
So….where’s the lesson…..Eat what’s good for you, everything in moderation and you’ll live long and strong.
