No trans fats in Mrs Fields cookies
Written on the 19 June 2008
Recent research conducted at the State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil into the adverse effects of trans fats on our health, has shown that these can be passed from mother to child through the breast milk, renewing demands for trans fats to be banned.
“Trans fats have been linked to increase the risk of cardio vascular diseases (CDV) and coronary heart disease (CHD) due to its reducing effects on the HDL [good] cholesterol and increasing the LDL [bad] cholesterol levels,” Mr Benefield explained.
Health authorities worldwide recommend that consumption of trans fats be reduced to trace amounts. Trans fats from partially hydrogenated oils are more deleterious than naturally occurring oils - leading to the ban of trans fats in New York State and cities such as Boston and Chicago.
‘We have always been focused on keeping our cookies and treats natural, keeping them free of artificial colours, additives, preservatives and of course, trans fats’, said Mr Benefield.
