    The latest video on the Small Bites YouTube channel discusses four popular deceptive advertising techniques relating to nutrition:

    • “Cholesterol-free”
    • “0 grams of trans fat per serving!”
    • “Made with fruit”

      I was upset to find that the instant grits I like to eat every now and again contain trans fat. 0g on the label of course, but partially hydrogenated soybean oil in the ingredients list.

      re: trans fat -
      1. I read somewhere that manufacturers can claim “0 trans fat” if there is less than 0.5g per serving, but “No trans fat” only if there is absolutely 0g trans fat in the product. true?
      2. Aren’t there new means of hydrogenation that don’t create trans fats? Some margarines claim no trans fats.

      The claim on labels for “Fat Free” is true for ALL fats. They can claim it is free of fat when it has less than 0.5g, regardless of the type of fat.

      Yes, but that’s not a huge concern compared to trans fats. Trans fat consumption (from partially hydrogenated oils) should ideally be at ZERO grams per day. Someone could potentially be getting 1.5 grams a day due to this label loophole.

      1.5 grams of fat added to one’s day really isn’t significant, which is why I focused solely on trans…
