FDA Seeks To Eliminate Trans Fats From Food In The US



The FDA said today that it would begin to take efforts to remove trans fats from food in the USA. The agency has made the “preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs), the primary dietary source of artificial trans fat in processed foods, are not ‘generally recognized as safe’ for use in food.”


If the FDA’s preliminary determination is made final then manufacturers will be required to reformulate products containing PHOs. FDA will seek comments on the proposal for 60 days “to gain input on the time potentially needed for food manufacturers to reformulate products that currently contain artificial trans fat.”
