How to use the data tables

Hold the cursor over the shaded text in the following table in order to see some helpful information.

CompanyThis column identifies the food company. Product Name/ DescriptionThis column identifies the food products that were chosen for analysis. Sampling DateThis column identifies when the food product was analyzed. Fat
(% by
weight
of food)This column indicates the fat content of the food as a percentage by weight.
TFA
(% of
total
fat)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.
SFA
(% of
total
fat)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.
TFA + SFA
(% of
total
fat)This column indicates the sum of the TFAs and SFAs expressed as a % of the total fat.
