If consuming cream cheese, go with a full fat organic cream

General information for those that might not
What is trans fat?
Some meat and dairy products contain small amounts of
naturally occurring trans fat.
But most trans fat is formed through an industrial process that
adds hydrogen to vegetable oil, which causes the oil to become
solid at room temperature. This partially hydrogenated oil is less
likely to spoil, so foods made with it have a longer shelf life.
Some restaurants use partially hydrogenated vegetable oil in their
deep fryers, because it doesn't have to be changed as often as do
Trans fat in your food
The manufactured form of trans fat, known as partially
hydrogenated oil, is found in a variety of food products,
Baked goods: Most cakes, cookies, pie crusts and
crackers contain shortening, which is usually made from partially
hydrogenated vegetable oil. Ready-made frosting is another source
of trans fat.
Snacks: Potato, corn and tortilla chips often contain
trans fat, many types of packaged or microwave popcorn use trans
fat to help cook or flavor the popcorn.
Fried food: Foods that require deep frying —
french fries, doughnuts and fried chicken — can contain trans
fat from the oil used in the cooking process.
Refrigerator dough: Products such as canned biscuits
and cinnamon rolls often contain trans fat, as do frozen pizza

Is Philadelphia Cream Cheese, Original a healthy cream cheese? I am talking about 1 8 oz bar with. 05 grams per serving trans fat, with 8 servings coming from each bar.
Hydrogenated is nowhere on the label.
Suggested limit is no more than 2 grams transfat/day if on a 2000/day cal. consumption.
Have I answered my own question?
