Front Cover
Ten Speed Press, 2003 - Cooking - 131 pages

Research now confirms that trans fatty acids are worse for our bodies than saturated fats such as butter and lard. In The Trans Fat Solution, 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.
