question one... the other 11 grams of fat are monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats.. those are good fats abundant in nuts and avacados etc. Good for the heart and brain. These dont have to be listed on the facts labeled so when companies show these its like bragging

Question 2 the other 35 grams of carbs are sometimes labeled in the form of dietary fiber and other carbs. the other carbs are usually the starchy things in the ingredients labeled below that make up whatever it is your eating...

I believe in 2006 it was mandated that if a product has trans fat in it.. that it must be shown in the nutri label.. another way to make sure if in the ingreidants you will see hydrogenated oil or partially hydrogenated that should be an alert..

True companies MUST list trans fat on there label unless its under 0.5 grams. The best way like stated is look for hydrogenated oil or partially hydrogenated oil. If it has that just put it back on the shelf.

sometimes i dont even go to your threads you've made cuz of your horrible english.

fat isn't always bad. if its mono/poly unstaturated fats, then your good to go. if its trans for saturated fat then dont bother its just horrible fat.

only difference in unsturated fat is that glucose is attached to the starch in the fats. saturated fats dont have the glucose. and its horrible.
