Deep frying is a likely source of trans-fatty acids
In the study, researchers compared the number of admissions for myocardial infarction (MI) or stroke in 11 counties that restricted trans-fatty acids
with 25 counties with no restrictions from 2002 to 2013.
Industrially produced trans-fatty acids
may induce endothelial dysfunction as assessed by flow-mediated vasodilatation and the upregulation of proinflammatory molecules production ; hence, the activation of proinflammatory cytokines implicates the link between vascular inflammation, atherosclerosis development, and thrombosis process, including rise in PAI-1 expression [33, 36].

Indian scientists are addressing the food industry's efforts aimed at reducing or removing trans-fatty acids
The material contains a significant proportion of active phytochemicals, is rich in phospholipids and glycolipids, is free of trans-fatty acids

'Khafeef contains more anti-oxidants and Vitamin E than any other frying oil and does not contain trans-fatty acids

Their mission was to measure fat and trans-fatty acids
- which are found naturally in meats but are also manufactured to make sweets, pastries, biscuits and cakes.
They believe the risk factor is not in the potatoes but in the preparation of the chips in saturated fats and trans-fatty acids
