i've never seen "trans fatty-acids" as a listed quantity on a label. i assume the rest of the fats are UNsaturated.

There are no bad foods, just bad diets -). And foods that have had the fats removed from them probably have had something added to make up for the flavor they lost, so be careful with that.

As to your question, it depends on the food and the quantity. For most people, drinking a cup of olive oil every morning is not good, even though it has quality fats in it.

I agree with entrrt. A label like the one you listed should be fine. Though I think poly is a little better than mono. Just thought I'd mention that I heard the FDA is going to start requiring the amount of trans fatty acids to be listed on food labels.
