All Sweet Christine's Products have 0 Trans fat

What is trans fat?

Trans fat is made by adding hydrogen to vegetable oil through a process called hydrogenation, which makes the oil less likely to spoil. Using trans fats in the manufacturing of foods helps foods stay fresh longer, have a longer shelf life and have a less greasy feel.

Scientists aren't sure exactly why, but the addition of hydrogen to oil increases your cholesterol more than do other types of fats. It's thought that adding hydrogen to oil makes the oil more difficult to digest, and your body recognizes trans fats as saturated fats.

Why you should care

You should keep trans fats as low as possible in your diet. Trans fats behave like saturated fats by raising the “bad” cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL), that may increase your risk of coronary heart disease (CHD), a leading cause of death in the United States.

Which products contain partially hydrogenated oil and trans fat?

Food products that contain trans fat include vegetable shortenings, harder stick margarines, crackers, candies, cookies, snack foods, fried foods, doughnuts, pastries, baking mixes and icings, and store-bought baked goods. You may think that trans fat primarily comes from margarine, but margarine accounts for less than 20% of the trans fat in the average American's diet. Some meats and dairy products naturally contain small amounts of trans fat.
