Camire Talks to IFT.org About Trans Fat

Mary Ellen Camire, president-elect of the Institute Food Technologists and professor of food science and human nutrition at the University of Maine, was interviewed about trans fats for IFT’s website. Camire explained what consumers need to know about trans fat in the wake of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) announcement that it is taking steps to further reduce artificial trans fat from processed food. She said people are becoming more concerned about the negative health effects trans fatty acids cause, and there has been more evidence suggesting the acids may be bad for cardiovascular health.
