Also, all food products that are sold in the United States are not allowed to have industrially produced trans fats. In an interesting twist of irony, more than a century later, we are at the brink of banishing trans fats completely from the face of the earth.

"The reality is that global food companies have done an unbelievable job reducing trans fats in rich countries, but they have largely ignored Asia and Africa". But the chemical process used to make them solid like butter also makes them clog arteries just as butter or lard does. Their deadline in June 18, 2018. The menace of trans-fats is huge in India as it is cheap and easy to use.

"Although trans fats extend the shelf life of food, we think the priority should be the length and health of human life". They help give foods a desirable taste and texture. In Denmark, the first country to mandate restrictions on industrially-produced trans fats, the trans-fat content of food products declined dramatically and cardiovascular disease deaths declined more quickly, the statement said. Here's a complete low down of the various health hazards of trans fats. They raise bad (LDL) cholesterol level and lower good (HDL) cholesterol levels, which increases risk of heart disease and stroke. When the oil is reused and reheated, it becomes lethal, increasing the rate of heart disease in South Asians.

"This is the first time there has ever been an elimination program to get rid of - not an infectious disease like polio or small pox - but a non-communicable disease, in this case the risk factor for heart attacks that trans fat causes". In the 1990s, research began identifying the adverse health effects of trans fats. It is now pressing middle and lower-income countries to act to eliminate trans fats. These fats are used in snack foods, fried foods, baked goods, and in products that contain vegetable shortening, coffee creamer, margarine, and ready-to-use frosting. The giant Mondelez International is about removing partially hydrogenated oils from their products by the end of the year.

What Does WHO Say about Trans Fat Intake?

According to a survey conducted by Diabetes Foundation of India, most women reuse oil for frying. The ambitious initiative figures that by 2023, the organization can convince nations to either ban those fats and oils - which are linked to hundreds of thousands of deaths per year - or food companies to substitute healthier alternatives. That may have been true of the old margarines made using hydrogenated oils, but it's less true now. Limit how frequently you eat them.

American consumers are more accustomed to the name partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. Not only are these foods very high in fat, but that fat is also likely to be trans fat.
