    Thanks for your email. We have consulted with one of our expert oil processor sources and can tell you that mono and diglycerides only infrequently contain trans fat. "Hard monos" contain no trans fatty acids. They are prepared from fully hydrogenated oils. Fully hydrogenated oil, unlike partially hydrogenated oil, does not produce trans fat. Hard monos are often used for cake and icing shortening.

    Monos prepared from native non-hydrogenated palm oil, sunflower or cottonseed oil are virtually free of trans.

    Only "soft monoglycerides" which are often used for cake mix shortening or imitation dairy products are similar to partially hydrogenated fat and do contain trans. We doubt, however, that large amounts of mono- and diglycerides are used, but if they provide significant amounts of trans fat, the trans would show up on food labels.



    This is the new ingredients popping up on products that used to have hydrogenated oil listed.

    That's what I'm saying.

    I don't think I've ever run far enough to get a legit runner's high. I ran like 5 miles once and kept waiting for it and just kept getting cramps in my traps :rofl:

    I know the high you're talking about. I've gotten it while biking and have slightly experienced it when I have run in the past (your head feels clear, and you operate like a robot as your body works with itself in perfect synchronicity).
    Usually when that happens though it just reminds me of how long I've been going at it and I'm like "fuck this, time to stop".

    The trap cramps suck. I never get cramps anywhere except there. What causes that anyway?
    I only get gut cramps if I eat before hand... but trap cramps happen every time, regardless.
