LIPIDS- TRANS FATS

Fats are a good source of energy.

1g of fat releases more energy than 1g of carbohydrate.  When you react fat with oxygen, more energy is generated.

Sometimes, unsaturated fats are converted to saturated fats by the process of hydrogenation. This is a chemical process that adds hydrogen to unsaturated fats. Conversion of unsaturated fat to saturated fat creates trans fats.

Trans fatty acids are by products that have 0% nutrition value.

Everyone should be aware of how unhealthy trans fats are. Many people practice poor eating habits because they consume a lot of trans fat. I have attached a video to bring awareness to the dangers of trans fats
