Its the fatty acid that makes margarine, baked goods, doughnuts, french fries and other fried foods taste good.
But experts say trans fatty acids may be even worse that saturated fat in terms of clogging arteries.
Currently consumers have no way of knowing how much of it is in their foods, but the F-D-A wants to change that.
The proposed label would include the amount of trans fat included in the saturated fat.
An asterisk with a footnote would indicate how much is included.
