Home Science Health Australia may become anti-trans fat


An Australian panel called Review of Food Labeling and Policy is looking into whether to recommend a required labeling of trans fats in Australian foods or to go a step further with a total ban for the country. Trans fats are usually hidden within foods so consumers don't know these bad fats are there.



The Review of Food Labeling and Policy (RFLP) panel was appointed in 2009 by the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) and the Australia and New Zealand Food Regulation Ministerial Council (Ministerial Council).

The panel is headed by former Australian Health Minister Dr. Neal Blewett.

Trans fat are widely considered one of the most dangerous fats in our diet, even more dangerous than saturated fat. Because of this danger, many countries have looked into its negative health affect on its citizens.

For instance, Switzerland and Denmark have totally banned trans fats from foods in their countries. And, the United States requires compulsory labeling of trans fats in its foods.

Trans fat is an unsaturated fat (such as monounsaturated or polyunsaturated) that contains trans-isomer fatty acids.

The chemical process of partial hydrogenation makes trans fat. (If you see "partially hydrogenated oils" on labeling, you know it contains trans fat.)
