Most ready-made, store-bought pies (like the frozen or refrigerated kind) have some traces of trans fat, as with most baking products. “For a frozen pie, it’s not the chicken or peas in it that’s the issue here, it’s the crust and the hydrogenated oil that’s in that crust,” says Bonci. For example, Marie Callender’s cream and frozen fruit pies and shells are known to contain between 1.5 and 4 grams of trans fat per serving. But if you’re making your own pie, you’ll still want to be careful of what kind of dough you buy, too: Pillsbury’s Frozen Pot Pie Crust Dough lists partially hydrogenated oil in its ingredients. You can try making your own pie crust without shortening or hydrogenated oil (use olive oil instead), or again, look for crusts that don’t list hydrogenated oil.
