Fats in Our Diets

Trans Fat

Through the years, certain foods fall in and out of public awareness and favor. This certainly has been true of fats, such as those found in margarine and butter. For example, for a time, margarine was recommended instead of butter for health reasons; more recently, margarine has received bad press because it contains trans fat. These conflicting messages in the media can create confusion.
