Trans fats, also known as trans fatty acids, in beef and mutton, There is a small amount of natural trans fat in milk and its products. The main source of artificial trans fats is partially hydrogenated vegetable oils. This oil has the advantages of high temperature resistance, non-deterioration, long storage, etc. It is commonly used in fried chicken, French fries, popcorn, biscuits, cakes and other foods. The use of healthy alternatives does not affect the taste and cost of the food.
Because it can extend the shelf life of fried and baked foods, coupled with low cost, artificial trans fats Was once considered a breakthrough invention. However, in recent years, more and more medical research has concluded that trans fats have no health benefits, and the less intake, the better.
The greatest health hazard of trans fat is that it increases the risk of people suffering from cardiovascular disease and poses a potential threat to public health. It is also worth noting that in recent years, some medical studies have found that trans fats not only harm the body but also have an impact on mental health.
Regulators in some countries require that trans fat content must be indicated on food packaging, and some countries are gradually blocking trans fat.
Denmark is the first country in the world to take measures to restrict the use of trans fats.The US government requires that after June 18, 2018, unless approved, processed foods in the US market will no longer allow the addition of hydrogenated vegetable oils. p>
Does China have trans fat limit standards?
In our country, the "General Rules for Nutrition Labeling of Prepackaged Foods" that was implemented on January 1, 2013 is clear Regulations, such as the use of hydrogenated and/or partially hydrogenated fats in the containment or production of food ingredients, must The trans fat content is indicated in the nutritional composition table, and food standards such as infant formula also stipulate that hydrogenated fats and fats should not be used, and some national standards also specify the maximum amount of trans fat.
In addition, According to the national standard, if the trans fat content in 100g or 100ml of food is less than 0.3g, it can be marked as “0”, so the standard 0 is not really a little bit, mainly for two reasons. It is when the content is very low, the accuracy of the measurement is reduced, and another such small amount of trans fat is difficult to pose a real threat to health, and the labeling does not make much sense.
