New website helps consumers understand natural trans fats

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, is designed to help consumers and nutrition advocates navigate these types of questions.
