You scrounged up enough coins for that fruit pie in D9, because, come on, the fruit pie says it’s made with “real fruit.” It’s healthy-ish, right?
One of the problems with packaged fruit pies, and other vending machine fare, is that they need a long shelf life, which often requires the addition of trans fats. The American Heart Association’s recommended daily intake of trans fat?
The FDA considers trans fats so detrimental to your health that they’ve given the food industry until 2018 to have it removed from all food products in the US. The health risks of trans fats are far too numerous to list here, so please, just steer clear.
A good rule of thumb: if something in a vending machine seems like real food (ie, “fruit” pies, “cheese” and crackers, “buttered” popcorn), then there’s a good chance trans fat is hiding inside.
