FDA Targets Trans Fat in Processed Foods

Partially hydrogenated oils, which are a major dietary source of trans fat, may soon become unapproved food additives.

Learn about the Food and Drug Administration’s preliminary findings on partially hydrogenated oils and find out what you can do to avoid trans fat.
