Oil in a Bottle
Jell-O No Bake Peanut Butter Cup Dessert has two ingredients guaranteed to set off your heart monitor. Palm kernel oil is 80 percent saturated...before it's hydrogenated.
Too Much Saturated Fat
Coconut oil is 85 percent saturated. Compare that to lard (40 percent) and butterfat (60 percent).
One serving of this dessert equals half your day's saturated fat allowance, and that doesn't even include the cholesterol-raising trans fat in the hydrogenated oils.
Nearly seven teaspoons of sugar, 23 grams of fat, and 380 calories round out this dessert.
To its credit, Jell-O does make a No Bake that's less damaging. A serving of the Reduced Fat Strawberry Swirl Cheesecake also has nearly seven teaspoons of sugar, but the calories are down to 250 and the fat to six grams (two of them saturated).
