Our expert says:
Many foods, including unprocessed meat and products like butter also contain trans-fatty acids, so to achieve a diet that is totally devoid of all trans-fatty acids would be practically impossible - even the human body makes trans-fatty acids during the production of acetyl Co-A in the mitochondria, so it is not really possible to totally avoid these fats. In addition SA food manufacturers are making a concerted effort to reduce the content of trans-fatty acid in their products. Contact Nestle (011) 889-6116 to check on their progress.
