define , trans-fatty acids
Weegy: Trans fat is the common name for unsaturated fat with trans-isomer (E-isomer) fatty acid(s). [ Because the term refers to the configuration of a double carbon-carbon bond, trans fats are sometimes monounsaturated or polyunsaturated, but never saturated. Trans fats do exist in nature but also occur during the processing of polyunsaturated fatty acids in food production. ] (More)
