Hydrogenation alternatives: effects of trans fatty acids
and stearic acid versus linoleic on serum lipids and lipoproteins in humans.
Trans fatty acids
were identified with a minimal intensity in all samples in the absorption peak at 968 cm-1 (see Figure 1B).
For example, an editorial In the New England Journal of Medicine In 2014 about trans fatty acids
stated, "In the early 1990s, studies began [Italics mine] revealing negative health effects of trans fats, and by the mid-20005, It was clear beyond doubt that trans fats Increase the risk of coronary heart disease.
They said: "A total ban on trans fatty acids
in processed foods might prevent or postpone about 7,200 deaths from coronary heart disease from 2015-20 and reduce inequality in mortality from coronary heart disease by about 3,000 deaths.
In our article (1), we report mean trans fatty acid
(TFA) intakes of 0.
Dietary trans fatty acids
are primarily products of hydrogenation, which makes unsaturated oils solid at room temperature.
Trans fats or trans fatty acids
(TFAs) are unsaturated fatty acids that have at least one of the carbon-carbon double bonds in the trans configuration, as opposed to the majority of dietary unsaturated fatty acids that have the double bonds in the cis configuration.
At this final three-way meeting, the co-legislators chose to settle the controversial questions of labelling requirements on origin, slaughter without stunning and trans fatty acids
by asking the Commission to carry out impact assessments.
In addition to the direct industry questionnaires, two investigators searched, systematically and independently, each declarant website for information on TFA contents of products in LAC markets using the search terms trans fatty acids
, trans fats, and trans in English, Spanish, and Portuguese.
trans fatty acids
(TFAs) are isomers generated by this process to an extent that will depend on processing conditions.
Trans fats - also known as trans fatty acids
- are found in many cakes, pastries, pies, chips and fast foods.
