BARC scientists develop a method for measuring individual trans fats in foods. This method has a broad use in food analysis and subsequent labeling of foods. BARC research in humans shows that trans fats raise serum cholesterol, leading to the recent U.S. Food and Drug Administration requirement for food labels to show trans fatty acid content.
