Healthier Snacks through Improved Soybeans


To cardiologists, there is no safe amount of trans-fat that a person can eat. The more trans-fat consumed, the greater the production of the bad cholesterol that damages the heart.

Trans-fat is created when liquid plant oils are engineered to a stable, non-perishable state through a process known as hydrogenation. Hydrogenated trans-fat lurks in most processed foods, including cookies, baked goods, popcorn, shortenings, crackers, doughnuts, chips and french fries.
