Trans fat question...

Hi!

In my efforts to reduce my cholesterol, I have had to try to teach myself about the ingredients in processed food. There is a lot to take in, but one thing still confuses me: How can some products advertise themselves as been free of trans fat, when the ingredient list still contains hydrogenated oils and/or vegetable shortening?

I thought those things were identical?

Thanks for any help!

Heidi
