Summary The level of trans-monounsaturated fatty acids in manufactured foods is largely unknown, however the survey showed the levels varied from 0.5% to 22.5% of total fatty acids in 55 foods tested. This survey data shows that these fatty acids raise blood cholesterol levels even more than saturated fat, which made labelling of foods for trans fatty acids mandatory.
