Trans fat: Trans fat is a type of fat that is created when liquid oils are transformed into solid fats, like shortening and some margarines. It is also found in many processed and packaged foods, such as snack foods, fried foods, and baked goods. Consuming trans fats has been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, so it is important to limit or avoid them altogether.
