CONTROLLING WEIGHT: FATTY FOODS SHOULD BE LABELED CLEARLY
We know very little about the possible ill-effects of some fats which are now widely used in manufactured foods. When naturally liquid oils are hardened chemically to make solid margarines and shortenings, the products contain some fatty acids not present in natural foods; these are called ‘trans’ acids. There is some suspicion that these are undesirable, and that they may raise blood-cholesterol levels. More generally, some prepared foods contain fats and oils which may be undesirable although they can truthfully be labeled ‘vegetable fat’. Coconut oil is an example; it contains chiefly saturated fatty acids which increase the blood cholesterol. Rape-seed oil used to be under suspicion for a different reason; some strains of rape-seed (no longer used) contain a fatty acid which is toxic to the heart in certain animals. Partly for these reasons a House of Commons Committee has recommended that foods should be clearly labeled to show the kind of fat they contain.
