Where did the trans fat come from? :o
Speculations anyone?

There's only 4 ingredients, and none of them seems to me like the source of that 0.05g of trans fat per serving.

Trans fats are by-products of hydrogenation of vegetable oils...

I agree with marnixR, its from the Soybean oil.

What im curious about is why it needs to non-GMO soybeans, given there is no harm at all in gmos?

It's soy milk.
Specifically, soy milk from Mr Bean.

Is it common to put partially hydrogenated oils in soy milk?

This is the product:

It's similar to putting a label of non-GMO & gluten free on water. It's a bunch of marketing buzz words to sell stuff to the mis- and un-informed.

My guess would be that it was a product of the making of the soybean oil into the soy milk, and not added to the soy milk afterwards

That's a lot of sugar and carbs - that's going to make you fat.
