Abstract: The function of lipids in human nutrition has been intensively debated in the last decade. This context reinforces the concern about controlling the trans fat ingestion. due to its negative implications on health. Interesterification provides an important alternative to modify the consistency of oils and fats without causing formation of trans isomers. This article reports research done towards production of zero trans fats by chemical interesterification, for different industrial purposes. Aspects related to the effect of trans fats on diet, their impact on health and modifications in Brazilian legislation are also covered.
