Trans fat use on the decline in Singapore
It can clog arteries, cause heart disease and lead to ballooning waistlines. But the good news is that trans fat is on the decline here.
At least 70 per cent of the Republic's supplies of margarine, shortening and cooking oil have been found to meet limits imposed by the Government earlier this year.
This means they contain only 2g of trans fat per 100g.
Retailers must also stock only products meeting the new limits, and trans fat levels have to be stated on nutrition information labels.
