Table 1 footnote d

This column indicates the fat content of the food as a percentage by weight.

Return to table 1 footnote d referrer

Table 1 footnote e

This column indicates the trans fats (TFAs) expressed as a % of the total fat content. The target is the 5% limit recommended by the Trans Fat Task Force.

Return to table 1 footnote e referrer

Table 1 footnote f

This column indicates the saturated fats (SFAs) expressed as a % of the total fat content. The levels of SFAs are included along with TFAs, since SFAs are also a risk factor for heart disease.

Table 1 footnote g

This column indicates the sum of the TFAs and SFAs expressed as a % of the total fat.

Table 1 footnote h

For Companies A and B

From 2005 to 2006, the TFAs were decreased to meet the 5% limit recommended by the Trans Fat Task Force.

Table 1 footnote i

Return to table 1 footnote i referrer

For Company A

From 2005 to 2006, the levels of SFAs were decreased. This column is useful to look at to see if TFAs were replaced by SFAs.

For Company B

From 2005 to 2006, the levels of SFAs were increased. This indicates that the company/food manufacturer replaced TFAs with SFAs.

Table 1 footnote j

Return to table 1 footnote j referrer

For Company A

The sum of the TFAs and SFAs is lower because the food company successfully replaced TFAs with healthier alternatives such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.

For Company B

The sum of the TFAs and SFA remains high indicating that TFAs were not replaced with healthier alternatives.
