Are trans fats hiding in your food?


A recent study conducted by the Center for Disease Control has found that 9% of top-selling packaged foods contain partially hydrogenated oils, a major source of trans fats. However, 84% of these foods have labels claiming the trans fat amount as 0 grams. A known loophole in the labeling requirements allows manufacturers to round down to 0 for any foods containing less than 0.5 grams trans fat.
