The recent announcement by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) labeling trans fats as a threat to public health will require that the food industry phase them out of processed foods. The news, paving the way to cut out trans fats comes even as several of us are planning to cook and serve the holiday fixin’s that we love: cakes, pies, cookies, fast breads, cornbread stuffing and the list goes on. many food companies and restaurants read the tea leaves on the arguable fats and voluntarily modified ingredients, pruning them from merchandise and menus. You will still find them in foods like pie crusts, biscuits and ready-to-use cake frostings. The key to knowing the have and have not things is to browse the labels and restaurant menus thoroughly.
