Plant fat powder is not trans fatty acid, but it can produce trans fatty acid. Studies have shown that the partial hydrogenation of vegetable oil is actually the process of changing the unsaturated fatty acid of vegetable oil into saturated or semi saturated state. In this process, trans fatty acid will be produced, which can increase the low-density lipoprotein in human blood, reduce the high-density lipoprotein, induce vascular sclerosis, and increase the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular accident.
However, total hydrogenation does not produce trans fatty acids, which is a very mature process. When revising the composition of food pyramid in the United States, it has been clearly pointed out that attention should be paid to trans fatty acids, and manufacturers are required to indicate the content of trans fatty acids in products.
Trans fatty acid hazards:
1. Thrombosis. Trans fatty acids can increase the viscosity and cohesion of human blood, which is easy to cause thrombosis, especially for the elderly with weak vascular wall.
2. Affect development. In pregnant or lactating women, excessive intake of foods containing trans fatty acids will affect the health of the fetus.
3. It affects fertility. Trans fatty acids can reduce the secretion of male hormones, have a negative impact on sperm activity, interrupt the sperm reaction process in the body.
With the progress of science and technology and the popularity of health concept, more and more manufacturers begin to produce zero trans fatty acid end products, which are produced with more healthy nutrients and lower cost, so as to ensure that everyone can experience safe and reliable end products. As long as the normal intake is ensured, there is no need to worry about the corresponding health problems.
