FDA Plans to Ban Trans Fat
WASHINGTON -- The Food and Drug Administration is proposing a ban on trans fat within the nation's food industry, after a determination that they are no longer considered safe to eat.
Trans fats have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease, CNN reports.
According to an FDA report, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that a further reduction of trans fat in the food supply can prevent an additional 7,000 deaths from heart disease each year and up to 20,000 heart attacks each year.
Many popular processed foods, like baked and frozen foods, contain trans fat. Various studies, however, have linked trans fat produced when hydrogen is added to vegetable oil to make it more solid to heart disease.
The FDA says trans fat can be found in such processed foods as cookies, cakes, frozen pies and other baked goods; snack foods such as microwave popcorn; frozen pizza; vegetable shortenings and stick margarines; coffee creamers and refrigerated dough products such as biscuits and cinnamon rolls.
The New York Times reports that the proposal will be open for public comment for 60 days. The FDA would then declare that partially hydrogenated oils, the source of trans fats, were no longer generally recognized as safe.
Companies would then have to prove that partially hydrogenated oils were safe. That might be difficult to prove, the Times reports, considering the Institute of Medicine says there is no safe level of trans fat consumption.
