  • grams of trans fat
  • Although it is assumed that the food label will always display the amount of trans fat in the product, the FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) allows serving sizes that contain less than 0.5 gram of trans fat per serving to show the product contains 0 grams of trans fat. (recipetips.com)
  • rich in trans
  • OBJECTIVE: Using rats we examined whether maternal intake of hydrogenated fat rich in trans fatty acids affects brain fatty acid profile, hypothalamic content of insulin receptor and insulin receptor substrate-1 proteins, and the hypophagic effect of centrally administered insulin in 3-mo-old male progeny.

  • intakes
  • However, the monitoring study also found that intakes of saturated fatty acids are higher than recommended for the Australian and New Zealand populations (see below). (foodstandards.gov.au)
  • The most recent national nutrition survey for New Zealand adults, the 2008‒09 Adult Nutrition Survey, also found high intakes of saturated fatty acids. (foodstandards.gov.au)
  • In addition, multiple regression analysis showed the intakes of TFA were positively associated with those of saturated fatty acids and groups of nonessential groceries such as cookies, cakes and pastries. (biomedsearch.com)

  • Nutrition Facts
  • As further studies confirmed the trans fat-heart disease link, the Center for Science in the Public Interest filed 1994 petition with FDA to require that the trans-fats substance be listed on nutrition facts labels (the petition was ultimately granted 12 years later), and the American Heart Association began to warn about the health risks of trans fats in 2004.
