Cooking and Shopping to Eliminate the Deadliest Fat from Your Diet
by Kim Severson
Deciphering nutrition labels can be daunting, especially when the deadliest dietary fat isn’t even listed on the label. Research now confirms that trans fatty acids, or trans fats, are worse for our bodies than saturated fats such as butter and lard—and food manufacturers aren’t required to list them on labels. In The Trans Fat Solution, San Francisco Chronicle food reporter Kim Severson demystifies the science of trans fats, offers a formula for detecting trans fat in packaged food, and gives shoppers an aisle-by-aisle guide to help them avoid buying it. Working with Seattle-based chef and food consultant Cindy Burke, Severson also offers 60 clear, practical recipes, shortcut mixes, and substitutes for packaged foods that will give readers new tools to create trans-fat–free versions of their favorite foods at home..
