1 doctor agrees
In brief: Depends HOW Done
The vast majority of c-c bonds in all fats are single, aka saturated (no room for more hydrogen side atoms).
If double bonds (unsaturated) present & converted to single bonds by industrial hydrogenation lacking control: ½ cis, ½ trans. All living cells do cis-. See google images. Plant fats more double bonds & liquid, than animal, more solid, but this does not mean healthier: ancel keys fraudulent.

In brief: Probably
Just read the label.
By law, the nutrition facts box on the package must list trans fats.

Labels can declare "zero" if the trans fat content is .5g or less per serving. Means trans fats are still in the product, and if you eat it, you are getting trans fats.
