FDA's Health Consumer Information

Trans fats occur in manufactured foods during the process of partial hydrogenation, when hydrogen gas is bubbled through vegetable oil to increase shelf life and stabilize the original polyunsaturated oil. The resulting fat is similar to saturated fat, which raises "bad" LDL cholesterol and can lead to clogged arteries and heart disease.

Until very recently, food labels were not required to list trans fats, and this health risk remained hidden to consumers. In early July, FDA regulations changed, and starting 2006 food labels are requiered to identifying trans-fat content in processed foods.

Here at Inka Crops, have taken the necessary steps to eliminate all hydrogenated oils from our products and re-labeled our packaging accordingly the the new FDA regulations.

For more information about the trans fatty acids, you can visit the FDA link at: "What Every Consumer Should Know About Trans Fatty Acids"

Smart Snacking = Snacks saludables

Junk food has given snacking a bad name.

"Snacking in itself isn't a bad thing," says Elaine Magee, PhD, RD, author of numerous nutrition books, including The Recipe Doctor Cookbook: Light and Healthy Versions of America's Favorite Dishes.

Magee firmly believes in eating several small meals during the day -- "and that includes quality, healthy snacks," she tells WebMD.
