Good information!! I always check the Nutrition Facts Label on the side or back of a food product to make sure there in no trans fat in the food I am about to buy.

I never realized ramen noodles were high in trans fat! I wonder if that includes Cup Noodles? I used to eat Cup Noodles all of the time for lunch. I've got to check the nutrition facts on those.

I just looked it up... apparently the kind I used to eat all of the time had 0 trans fat. It is very high in sodium though. That can't be good. Here is the link to the nutrition facts:

Also... unsaturated fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat, do not raise LDL (bad) cholesterol and are beneficial when consumed in moderation.

Fat is a major source of energy for the body and aids in the absorption of vitamins. Both animal and plant-derived food products contain fat.

When eaten in moderation, fat is important for proper growth and maintenance of good health. As a food ingredient, fat provides taste, consistency, and stability and helps us feel full.

Parents should be aware that fats are an especially important source of calories and nutrients for infants and toddlers - up to 2 years of age, who have the highest energy needs per body weight of any age group.

We now know to avoid foods containing saturated and trans fats, and that unsaturated fats, such as monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fat are beneficial when consumed in moderation. It is advisable to choose foods low in saturated fat, trans fat, and cholesterol as part of a healthful diet.

Ironically, if you eat raman noodles for breakfast lunch and dinner you've got your sodium for the day! :D
