Junk food and fast food are known to have the highest amounts of trans fat and therefore people consuming such foods are at a higher risk of cardiac diseases. Americans top the list of such food eaters who preferably consume junk.
In this regard, in 2007, the New York Government announced to restrict the amount of trans fat present in food items that restaurants offer to their customers. They were allowed to put ingredients responsible for bulging trans fat to a certain limit only. To confirm whether the guidelines were followed or not, recently a research was carried out by the Annals of Internal Medicine, during which all those foods bought by thousands of customers from New York fast-food restaurants before and after the regulation were analyzed.
As a result, reputed difference was found in people's heart health. The food purchased from restaurants after the release of latest regulations was found to have about 2 and a half fewer grams of trans fat, which means a 22 calories worth fat was missing from that food. And this amount if accumulated on a larger scale sounds quite sufficient for improving people's overall heart health.
However, baked food is always better than junk and fried food. So, switching over it, is an effective way to remove more of trans fat from your diet.
