Trans Fats

Trans fats can be found in the following foods:

  • Hard magarines
  • Soft magarines
  • Mass-produced baked goods
  • Fish and chips

It is recommended that we reduce the intake of trans fats to less than 2% of total fats eaten. It may be wise to limit the consumption of trans fats further.
