Smart Balance Deluxe Microwave Popcorn, Smart Movie-Style
No trans fats. Helps improve cholesterol. Non-Hydrogenated. It's high time for my new popcorn. I believe that if microwave popcorn is made with partially hydrogenated oil, it cannot be healthy. The hydrogenation process creates trans fatty acids that can raise bad cholesterol and lower good cholesterol (just the opposite of what you want). Hydrogenation is a process to harden liquid vegetable oil but forms damaging trans fatty acids. Bad news., folks. The oil blend we use to make our popcorn has been patented to help improve the cholesterol ratio. It contains the right balance of trans-free vegetable oils. I believe in it and you can too! Let me know what you think about it. Thank you. Bob Harris, Heart Beat Foods. How Brandeis University Nutrition Scientists Enhanced HDL/LDL Cholesterol: At least two-thirds of the fat intake in the diet should come from Smart Balance products or our food plan. Limit total fat to about 30% of calories (65g/day); saturated fat to under 10% (20g/day); dietary cholesterol to under 300 mg per day and trans fatty acids reduced by avoiding foods with partially hydrogenated oils. Exercise regularly. Let us help balance the fats in your diet with the Smart Balance Food Plan.
