Eating out? Watch for trans fat

By Mayo Clinic Staff

Have you been trying to keep foods that contain trans fat out of your kitchen? Good move. But what about when you're eating in a restaurant? Some restaurants still use trans fat when frying food. For example, a large serving of french fries at some fast-food restaurants might contain 5 grams or more of trans fat. When dining out, read menu labels or ask the staff for nutritional information.
