FDA Looks to Eliminate Trans Fats
The Food and Drug Administration revealed Thursday, November 7th, that partially hydrogenated oils, which are the primary source of trans fats, are no longer "generally recognized as safe." Foods that do contain the unapproved additives are "considered adulterated under US law." This means manufacturers can no longer legally sell foods that include the oils, which makes it practically impossible to include trans fats. Only artificial trans fats will be prohibited, not natural trans fats. The big push behind eliminating the additive is because of its direct link to heart disease.
