Thursday 8/16/18

Yesterday, we talked about dietary guidelines for sodium and added sugars. Today, we’ll touch on fiber and trans fat.

Trans Fat is no longer “generally recognized as safe” by the FDA. June 18, 2018, was the deadline for manufacturers to eliminate artificial sources of trans fat from all new food products sold in the United States. However, products created before June 18 of this year have until January 1, 2020 to comply.

We should be getting 28g of Dietary Fiber a day. This has been deemed a “nutrient of public health concern” because of the health risks associated with low intake and the fact that the vast majority of Americans don’t get enough.

Track the amount of fiber and trans fat you’re getting in your diet today. How does your snapshot measure up to the recommended guidelines?
