EDMONTON, June 14, 2012 /CNW/ - It's time for fresh thinking on trans
fats - from health recommendations, to food choices to nutrition
labeling. And now there is a new website to help.
New research has unveiled that not all trans fats are created equal. A
growing amount of evidence continues to suggest that industrial trans
fats are indeed a major threat and should be avoided, says Dr. Spencer
Proctor of the University of Alberta. However, research has uncovered
new knowledge of a separate family of "natural trans fats," found in
meat and milk from ruminant animals, which are not harmful and may in
fact have health-enhancing potential.
What's the difference? What does this mean for food choices? The new
website, located at www.naturaltransfats.ca, is designed to help consumers and nutrition advocates navigate these
types of questions.
