Description
 
Federal agencies charged with giving dietary advice to consumers -- the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture USDA) and the Dept. of Health and Human Services(HHS) -- recommend that consumers keep their intake of trans fatty acids as low as possible. To that end, Federal regulations now require food labels to say how many grams of trans fats are in each serving. This report examines recent changes in the trans fats content of new food products and the use of no trans fats package claims. The authors find a marked decline in the trans fats content of new food products from 2005 to 2010, along with an increase in the use of no trans fats claims on product packages. They also find that only a small minority of foods that contain no trans fats make such claims even though the use of a no trans fats claim is associated with higher rates of successful market penetration in a majority of product categories. In addition, new products without trans fats generally contain less saturated fat, sodium, and calories, which suggests that the reduction of trans fats was not compensated by increases in these other nutrients. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
