Survey Revels Trans Fats Content on the Higher Side In Fast Food Chains

According to a research commissioned by The Globe and Mail and CTV News it is said that foods sold in Canada contain levels of Trans fats that are among the highest in the world//. These fats result in the clogging of arteries. When surveyed the different outlets of fast foods such as KFC, McDonald's, Burger King and Wendy's it was found that the amount of trans fat in these outlet varied drastically. Bruce Holub, a professor of nutritional sciences at the University of Guelph in Guelph, Ontario said that eliminating trans fats is very good for the health. Trans fats are formed when oil is partially hydrogenated to increase shelf life and improve taste. Some countries like Denmark has banned trans fats completely.

In Canada and the United States, labelling of packaged goods for trans-fat content is mandatory, but that rule does not extend to restaurant food. Steen Stender, a cardiologist at Gentofte University Hospital in Hellerup, Denmark, and former head of the Danish Nutrition Council were surprised at the levels of trans fat in various foods in Canada. Higher levels of trans fat usage were witnessed in countries such as Poland, Hungary and Canada. But in Germany, Russia, Denmark and Scotland, used less amount of trans fats. Another advantage is that by removing trans fat it does not appear to alter taste dramatically or markedly affect the cost. Regular consumption of trans fats would increase the risk of heart disease.
