Margarine, potato chips and french fries will soon be prohibited by law!
Do you like french fries, potato chips and other treats that are deep fried?
These supplies will be soon prohibited by law.
Trans fats are unsaturated fats with certain fatty acids, and their consumption is associated with heart diseases, so many government organizations and centers for food control, intervene for their prohibition.
It is stated that trans-fats are no longer characterized as safe for consumption, which means that their use in food production will be prohibited.
Companies that produce food containing trans fat will have three years to take them out of use, and will be able to use them only in special circumstances and with special permission.
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration), an agency within the Ministry of Health USA, responsible for the quality control of food and medicine, is taking a step to remove artificial trans fat from the food supply since 2013. However, even now was announced that the decision is valid.
– This decision was made based on scientific evidence and testing. Studies have shown that nutrition has an important role in the prevention of chronic diseases and that this decision is in line with the other FDA initiatives to improve the health of Americans – says Susan Mayne, Director of the Center for Food Safety at the FDA.
Many studies have shown that trans fats increase the level of bad cholesterol in the blood and reduce the level of good cholesterol.
The American center for Disease Control and Prevention notes that the elimination of trans-fats will prevent as many as 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths due to heart disease annually.
Since 2006, the FDA has required all food manufacturers to include labels that disclose the amount of trans fat in a given product. According to the agency, trans fat consumption in the U.S. decreased by 78 percent between 2003 and 2012 due to the enforcement of labeling guidelines
