Elaidic acid is the most commonly found trans fatty acid found in cell membranes.

What is a trans fat?

Trans fat, or trans-fatty acids, are unsaturated fatty acids that come from either natural or industrial sources. Naturally-occurring trans fat come from ruminants (cows and sheep). Industriallyproduced trans fat are formed in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to vegetable oil converting the liquid into a solid, resulting in “partially hydrogenated” oil (PHO).

Potential health impact of consuming foods that contain trans fat:

Approximately 540,000 deaths each year can be attributed to intake of industrially produced trans-fatty acids. 

High trans fat intake increases the risk of death from any cause by 34%, coronary heart disease deaths by 28%, and coronary heart disease by 21%. 

This is likely due to the effect on lipid levels: trans fat increases LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels while lowering HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.

Trans fat has no known health benefits.

What does it mean if your Elaidic result is too high?

High trans fat intake increases the risk of death from:

- any cause by 34%,

- coronary heart disease deaths by 28%,

- and coronary heart disease by 21%. 

This is likely due to the effect on lipid levels: trans fat increases LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels while lowering HDL (“good”) cholesterol levels.

Trans fat has no known health benefits.

A recent study suggests that a high intake of industrial trans fatty acids may increase the risk of weight gain, particularly in women. Prevention of obesity should consider limiting the consumption of highly processed foods, the main source of industrially-produced trans fatty acids.
