In the 1990s, fat was out - or at least it was kept low. Move to the 2000s and, with the ascendancy of the low-carb diet, fat’s back in. But not really all fat - maybe now just “healthy” fat. Increasingly, nutritionists and researchers are discovering - and publicizing - the dangers of saturated fats and trans fatty acids, components of many packaged, processed foods. By January 2006, under new Food and Drug Administration regulations, all food marketers will have to disclose the level of trans fats in their packaged products. Already, many large companies, such as Frito-Lay, Nabisco and Tyson Foods, have eliminated or reduced the level of trans fats in their products, and many more are sure to follow suit. This report examines the issues behind the efforts to reduce or remove trans fats from products, and the impact that will have on the marketplace and the consumer.
