Consumers Worried About Trans-Fats The Most

Trans fats are a hotly debated topic in the health fraternity these days. A survey of 5,279 Americans found that food consumers are more concerned about trans-fats than carbohydrates.//

Among the surveyed, 21 percent strongly wanted to limit intake of trans-fats, which had been known to raise bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol, killing thousands a year in the US. In comparison, 10 percent strongly wanted to limit carbohydrates in their diet.

The number of the low-carb Atkins diet practitioners had dropped from 13 percent in the previous year to eight percent according to the survey, which was conducted by Aramark Corp – a food-services management firm.

However, the survey also found that although US consumers wanted more nutritional information than ever about the meals they ate away from home, time and convenience are the number-one priority when it came to what to eat, unless they had medical conditions.

A similar survey conducted in Canada found 34 percent of the surveyed viewed trans-fat as their primary concern.

Trans-fats have been widely publicized in Canada. The Canadian government is considering banning trans-fat in all food products.

In the U.S., labeling trans-fat will be required starting on January 1, 2006. The US government does not seem to have any intention to ban use of trans-fats in foods in the foreseeable future.
