Health Canada will ban trans fat next year.

For those of you that are concerned about trans fats in our food, this is good news.

You will not find any artificial trans fat(trans fatty acid) on any dining plates across the country come September 15th, 2018.

Trans fats are used to extend the shelf life of foods like pastries, packaged goods, and other baked products. Companies add trans fat to their products to help them last longer, therefore making more money in the end.

What are the effects of trans fat on our bodies you might ask?

Oils found in trans fats raise levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL). LDl is considered “bad” cholesterol. It also lowers the “good” cholesterol levels in the body.

When this happens our heart health can be affected.

On September 15th, 2018 all foods sold in Canada (including imported as well as local), and restaurant prepared meals will not be permitted to contain trans fat.

Canadian researchers estimate a ban could prevent 12,000 heart attacks in Canada over 20 years.”

  1. Just to clarify, food companies do not add trans fat to food to save money. Trans fat is formed during the process of hydrogenation when liquid fat is changed to solid fat. If companies use hydrogenated fat in their products, these contain trans fats. There are other methods to change liquid oil to solid fat that do not involve hydrogenation and will not contain trans fats but they are more expensive. If trans fats are banned, then companies will switch from hydrogenation to a different process and will likely pass on the increased cost to the consumer. Here is a link from the USFDA website that explains how trans fats are formed during food manufacturing processes. https://www.fda.gov/Food/ucm292278.htm
