Trans fats are still hiding everywherePosted on Jun 13th 2007 10:58AM by Rigel Celeste
It may seem like since we're hearing about trans fat bans on new products on an almost daily basis, there must be practically none left out there. It seems like no company would dare have trans fats at this point, would they?
Well they would dare, and they do. Grocery stores are still full of products that are loaded with unhealthy trans fats such as pot pies, frozen pizzas, pastries, cookies, and various convenience foods (all the good stuff!).
Just because we keep seeing so many "Trans Fat Free" and "0% Trans Fat" labels doesn't mean the problem is solved. Even brand name foods like Pepperidge Farm and Campbell's still have high trans fat content in some of their products. Reading labels and finding brands and products you know are healthy is more important thane ever!
