Interesterified Fat Bad For Health
Beware Of This Killer Fat
If you are what you eat, if it is true that diet makes up as much as
50-85 % of success in fitness as some have claimed, then it makes
sense to watch what you put into your mouth. And the more lean and
muscular you want to be, the more you have to keep an eye on it.
One element you want to be looking for in particular is a substance
called "interesterified fat." Interesterified fat is an artificial
fat that is now starting to be produced by industry in place of trans
fat. Trans fat was bad enough, and when pressure arose to get rid of
it, big industry simply replaced one bad fat with another (be aware,
however, that some companies are still putting trans fat in foods).
And both are really bad. Trans fat, for instance, may stick in your
body for a long, long time. Perhaps that's why your belly won't go
away – it is full of artificial fat that the body doesn't know how to
dispose of. So too with interesterified fat.
Of course you will want to be diligent to avoid all kinds of
artificial fats because they don’t do anything good for your
waistline or your muscles, and worse, they damage your body
That is particularly true of interesterified fat as it is not only
bad for the belly, it is also very bad for the heart. Some
researchers indicate that it is even worse than trans fat.
There are a few prominent places where interesterified fat is
starting to show up. One of these is the tortilla. Many of the main
tortilla makers now put interesterified fat in their tortilla
Another product where interesterified fat is showing up is in peanut
butter. Many manufacturers have turned to interesterified fat for use
in peanut butter.
One thing to be wary of is that industry gets tricky about listing
this fat in their products. So label it as interesterified fat, but
others do not. Dr. Joseph Meracola points out:
The FDA has ruled that food manufacturers can use terms like high
stearate or stearic fats in place of "interesterified." To confuse
things even further, if you see the terms fully hydrogenated
vegetable oil, palm oil and/or palm kernel oil on labeling, the
product may or may not contain interesterified fat. And beware eating
out, because while restaurants and their suppliers are touting
removal of trans fats from the foods they serve, very little is being
said about the fats that are replacing them.
He goes on to note - "The bottom line is that if a processed food
label includes 'vegetable oil' as an ingredient, you can be
absolutely sure you're about to consume either interesterified fats,
or trans fats."
So be wary of this very bad fat and totally avoid it if you want to
protect both your mid-section and your heart.
