Level-headed commentary on trans fat


Now there’s a craze to remove trans fats from food, but will that make us healthier. This balanced piece from USA Today claims the answer is yes, but only marginally. And they’re right. A Krispy Kreme doughnut without transfat is only a little better than a Krispy Kreme doughnut as it stands now, mainly because trans fats are typically replaced with blends of oils containing saturated fats. Either way, switching from fried foods to foods with mono- or poly-unsaturated fats, healthy proteins, and high fresh vegetable content is the only way to make a quantum leap to a healthier diet.
