I was just noticing today that my grass fed beef from Trader Joe’s has some trans fat in it (1.5 per serving). The site had this to say:
“Trans fat is a specific kind of fat that is formed when oil manufacturers change a liquid oil into a solid or semi solid fat, such as shortening or margarine. Hydrogen is added to liquid vegetable oil to solidify it. This process is called hydrogenation, and it creates trans fats. Trans fats are also found in nature, but in very small amounts in some animal based foods.”
Anyone have any thoughts on this? I guess I don’t get how something so natural could have something so bad in it. Does anyone know if ALL grass fed beef products contain some trans fat, or is it just the brand I’m getting?
