News: FDA Sets 2018 Deadline to Rid Foods of Trans Fats


I am quite glad to hear the news that FDA wants all the companies to remove trans-fats from the food by 2018.  It took them so many years to admit that trans-fats were bad and I am glad that they are moving towards removing it from our foods.

Can you imagine that they were telling us to do the opposite and consume trans-fats several decades ago. That’s how margarine and other low fat spreads emerged.

Indians would definitely remember Dalda. 

I find it interesting how food trends change just like fashion. Earlier fat was the enemy, now sugar is the root of all evil. I wonder where all these health bloggers/food coaches were when we were fighting fats in food? I don’t trust any food trends anymore because we do not know when they may be proved completely wrong.
