In this study, trans FA (TFA) contents and also intakes of TFAs of frequently consumed edible oils and fats marketed in Iran were estimated. 6 brands in 4 groups of edible oils and fats (partially vegetable hydrogenated oils, non-hydrogenated vegetable oils, frying oils and margarines) were considered. The highest amount of TFA was found in partially vegetable hydrogenated oils (7.38%) and margarines (11.63%). Moreover, Ministry of Health and Medical Education of Iran has drastically decreased the TFA intake from 12.3 g/day in 2007 to 1.42 g/day in 2013 by planning.
