Hydrogenated fat and trans fat
Hydrogenated fat has since long been widely used in Sweden. It is mandatory to
declare partially hydrogenated or just hydrogenated fats in the ingredient list
on the product. In our campaign against these fats we have checked the market
and published a list on producers and products using those fats. The list is searchable
Our campaign is focused on eliminating industrial hydrogenating of fats (with
more or less trans fats) and we do not demand particular labelling of trans fats.
There are so many other dangerous by-products when hydrogenating fats, so it is
better to eliminate it totally.
We are convinced that this list has been a good help to consumers to act and also
to convince producers that industrially hydrogenated fats are not a consumer preference.
Many producers of bread and cookies have already changed there recipes and now
use better fat. See the "green
Hope you can understand names, although they are in Swedish. You are welcome to
