<ul><li><p>Trans FatsWhat are they?</p><p> Where are they found?</p><p> Whats the hype? Is there reason to be concerned?</p></li><li><p>What are they?Trans fats for the most part are oils that have been chemically treated with hydrogen creating a new chemical structure thus changing both the chemical & physical properties.These fatty acids are chains of carbon atoms which combine with other molecules.</p><p>This is a manufacturing process called hydrogenation. Actually the liquid oil can be made more viscous to a point where the oil becomes a solid.</p></li><li><p>The Fat Transformer</p></li><li><p> Lets Discuss Fats First There are THREE BASIC CLASSIFICATIONSSaturatedMonounsaturatedPolyunsaturatedAll fats are identified as fatty acids that are recognized by the chemical formula.The molecule of fat is totally filled with hydrogen making it a saturated molecule.When the molecule of fat has only one available space for hydrogen it is known as a monounsaturated fat.And if there are more than one availability for hydrogen, the fat is known as a polyunsaturated fat.</p></li><li><p>So now what?</p><p>How can I tell which is which?Lets take a look at a few sample fats & oils.</p><p> Saturated</p><p> Monounsaturated</p><p> Polyunsaturated</p></li><li><p>Where are they found?Cakes Cookies Crackers</p><p>Pies Processed Foods</p><p>Fast Foods Fried Foods</p></li><li><p>How are we doin?</p></li><li><p>So Whats the HypeTrans fats have been about for about 100 years. So whats up all of a sudden?Trans fats are mostly unsaturated so isnt that a nutritive improvement?Trans fats improve the flavor & texture of foods.Trans fats have a longer shelf life than the oils or animal fats.Trans fats maintain high temperatures for frying without burning.</p></li><li><p>Is there reason for concern?In 1990 scientists discovered a relationship between trans fats & cholesterol. Raises the LDL Lowers the HDLThese two conditions significantly increase the chance of heart disease. 1. making the arteries more rigid 2. causing major clogs in the arteries 3. creating insulin resistance 4. actually cause or contribute to type 2 diabetes.</p></li><li><p>In January 2006 the US government requires all manufacturers to list the trans fat content on the nutrition labels.At this time it is recommended that we only intake 1-2 grams per day of trans fat.When is Zero not Zero? </p><p>Absolutely YES!! We are on the right track but must be active consumers and citizens for a healthier you. </p></li></ul>
