RE: trans fats
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
- 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.
