Companies cut trans fats

I am so excited about this!!! Curt and I found out about the horrors of trans fats, found on the ingredient lists of many prepackaged foods as "partially hydrogenated" oils, almost eight years ago. Since that time we have done our best to avoid them, but the stuff is everywhere! Pretty much any box of cookies or crackers you find in the supermarket uses them, and I've even found them in Trader Joe's frozen quiche! Finally, with the FDA ordering that trans fats be listed on food labels by January 2006, following a respected study about the dangers of trans fats (conclusion: there is no safe minimum amount), the nation's food companies are coming up with new recipes that avoid using so-called "h'os". Frito-Lay led the way, completing a conversion to corn oil for Tostitos, Doritos and Cheetos in 2003; now Nabisco, Pepperidge Farm, Kraft and many others are following suit. Finally, I can eat Triscuits again! And Goldfish! And Fig Newtons! Wahoo!
