【反式脂肪真狡猾】反式脂肪屬不飽和脂肪酸的一種，主要來源自經氫化的植物油，進食後會於人體中產生不容易分解的反式脂肪酸，容易增加低密度膽固醇 (LDL)及降低高密度膽固醇 (HDL)，長期食用會增加患心腦血管疾病的風險。
【Trans fat is so tricky】Trans fat is a kind of unsaturated fatty acid that is mainly derived from partially hydrogenated vegetable oil. It becomes difficult for the body to break down trans fatty acids, which easily increase low-density cholesterol (LDL) and reduce high-density cholesterol (HDL). Long term consumption would increase the risk of cardiovascular diseases.
We could reduce the unnecessary intake of trans fat by paying attention to the contained hydrogenated vegetable oil, refined oil, plant-based butter, shortening, non-dairy creamer, and margarine in the food products before purchasing. Also include natural and whole food in the diet, while reducing the consumption of processed food and deep-fried food.
Friendly reminder: According to the food label regulation in Hong Kong, food products are allowed to state 0g of trans fat if that contains 0.3g of trans fat or under per 100g. Therefore, the food product may contain more trans even if it stated 0g on the food packaging.
