Trans-Fat Should be Avoided In ADHD Diet

Other terms for Trans fats are “partially hydrogenated”, “hydrogenated”, and “shortening.” If you pick up a product and you think it’s safe because it says “Trans fat are 0g,” that means it has less than 0.5g. US ruling says that it the fat content is less than 0.5g per serving, manufacturer cans list it as having 0 gram. It may seem like a small amount but seriously how many of us eat one serving size.

Most kids will eat multipe servings exceeding this intake. Trans fat are the result of adding hydrogen to vegetable oils. They are used to extend the shelf life of products and to make fried foods taste crispy.

Here are some of the Trans-fattiest foods in your supermarket:

1. Hostess Cherry Fruit Pies (8g per serving)

2. Pop Secret Kettle Corn (6g per serving)

3.Celeste Original Pizza (5g per serving)

4. Pillsbury Grands Flaky Supreme Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls (5g per serving)

5.Austin Cheese Crackers With Cheddar Jack Cheese (4.5g per serving)

*Your limit should be less than 2g a day.

Enthusiastically yours,
