Mmmmmmm, transfats -- since I care about everyone's arteries, including my own, here's an article from the Blue Cross site with the facts on this pesky fat. Some of you have heard me yammering about partially hydrogenated this and that -- and the tragedy of Nutella, the most delicious thing I should really never eat again, sigh. The trick with transfats is that there is no safe amount to eat -- that's why the FDA wouldn't set a Recommended Daily Allowance. Yet it's in almost every packaged baked good and snack item, and most fried things...all the tastiest morsels, sadly. Well, if you think these are tasty...*ahem.* I guess our grandmas were right after all...it doesn't pay to eat stuff that's "sweet enough to make your teeth crack."
