    Not sure if vegitible oil contains trans fats, but I know vegitible oil is shi*e and you should stay away from it.

    As long as you eat good bodybuilding foods, you're be safe theres no trans fats in your deit.

    Look out for the word hydrogenated on the ingredients.

    There are small amounts (~1%) of naturally-occurring trans-fats in butter and ruminant fats but these are completely harmless (not artery-clogging). CLA is an example.

    a lot of processed food contains hydrogenated oils to help preserve them. For example things that might contain hydrogenated oils:

    - gravy granuals
    - super noodles
    - cupa soup
    - fresh breaded chicken breasts
    - tortilla wraps
    - cakes
    - hot chocolate type powdered drinks
    - dehydrated food
    - shrink wrapped food with long best before dates

    Its a little bit naughty as a food maybe low in fat but with hydrogenated oil as 3rd ingredient. ppl shouldnt be worried about fat per se they should be worried about the type of fat.

    A little here and there is probably unavoidable and I wouldnt get in a flap about it. Just opt for alternatives when possible. For example you can get tortilla wraps without hyrogenated fats and you can get breaded chicken without it too, although a lot of these types of products do contain hydrogenated oils.
