Look for Trans Fat Information on Food Labels Soon

separator

The Food and Drug Administration says it’s planning to add information about trans fat to food labels sometime this winter or spring. That will be in addition to saturated fat information, which is already on the labels. Many people already know that saturated fat can contribute to unhealthy cholesterol levels, but an understanding of trans fats is not as common.

Eating foods containing trans fats can lead to an increase in LDL, or “bad” cholesterol. Trans fats are found in many fast foods, pastries, snacks foods, etc. Talk with your diabetes educator or dietitian about ways to eliminate trans fats from your diets, and be on the lookout for those food labels.
