Trans fats are found in shortening, hard stick margarine, cookies, crackers, and snack foods made with partially hydrogenated oil.
Most trans fats are man-made. However, a small amount of naturally occurring trans fat is found in animal products. Be sure to read the food labels when you shop because some foods that claim to be trans fat free but still contain partially hydrogenated oils.
