Hydrogenated fats and Trans-fats are in processed foods such as crisps, cakes, biscuits, ready-meals, pies, pasties, chips, batter, sausages, vegetarian sausages and cheap margarine. These are vegetable oils that are ‘hardened’ by a process of pumping hydrogen into the oil, which creates saturated and the more dangerous trans-fats. Trans-fats have got scientists concerned, who believe that these are more damaging than saturated fats. This type of fat is not recognized by the body and is linked to high cholesterol and heart disease (9). It also stops the essential fats (Omega 3 and 6) getting properly absorbed by the body. On labels look out for “Hydrogenated” or “partially hydrogenated” fat/oils. A small reduction of their intake will help, because this type of fat is widespread in basic food products. Margarine is the main culprit, so go for the healthy options from whole food stores. They usually stock various brands.
