DAILY HEALTH TIP
You might see a product label that says contains 0 grams of transfat but still see "partially hydrogenated" on the listing of ingredients. That's because if a serving of a food contains less than 1/2 gram of transfat, the label can still say it has no transfat. Since we often eat more than one serving of a food, we can get more transfat than we realize.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO ....
Fala E.!
