What are trans fatty acids

Now everyone’s nutrition concept is improving. Many people know that trans fatty acids are not good. Eating too much is harmful to the body, but what are the trans fatty acids in daily life? What are the harms of eating them? A few days ago, my little sister asked me this question. I laughed and thought that I would. Trans fatty acids are hydrogenated vegetable oil, margarine and margarine. No, I can’t remember. What is the harm of trans fatty acids, damage to blood vessels, fat accumulation or what? After that, I felt as if I knew something about this thing. When she asked me, I could only pretend to say: why do you ask so many questions? Anyway, you just need to know how to eat less cream cake, puffed food and snacks, but you don’t understand it. Then I rolled back to check the data and research, trying to make this matter clear, clear, clear, white and white before she responded. I vowed to defend my dignity as a nutritionist.

First, let’s start with the concept: what are trans fatty acids?

Previously, I always thought that trans fatty acids were hydrogenated vegetable oils (I blame my poor organic chemistry). Wikipedia shows that trans fatty acids are incomplete hydrogenated fatty acids. There is no so-called homeostasis and trans structure in the complete hydrogenation of fatty acids. Only when the hydrogenation is not complete, some fatty acids appear trans structure.
