3. Hydrogenated Oils
Trans fats should be avoided as they are associated with a number of health risks. These fats are found in many packaged edibles such as mayonnaise, crackers, cookies, pastries and microwave popcorn.
They are usually added to extend the shelf life of a product, but they can be detrimental to your health. To avoid these high-cholesterol foods, check food labels for the word ‘hydrogenated’ and avoid buying any product with this ingredient. Taking these small steps can help protect your health and lead to a healthier lifestyle.
