FDA ban on trans fat: Nutritionist shares what you can still enjoy to eat

HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) – Food manufacturers now have three years to remove trans fat from their products.

Doctors say trans fat raises bad cholesterol and lowers the good, as well as contributes to 20,000 heart attacks and 7,000 deaths a year.

Trans fat can be found in fast food, microwave popcorn, and baked goods.

Manufacturers like artificial trans fats because they taste good and give food a longer shelf life.

A GIANT Food Store Nutritionist shared insights on what is okay to eat and what to avoid.
