      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…
