The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is working on a proposal to ban Trans Fats from processed food. This might be especially a problem for Microwave Popcorn says new report.

Microwave Popcorn is a very convenient invention. You put the flat bag into the Microwave and boom you get a full hot bag of fresh popcorn. There might be just one problem. Trans Fats.  The U.S. Food and Drug Administration wants to ban these additives. The Government claims to be able to save 7,000 lives each year through the measure.

Reuters reports that it is a very difficult process to remove trans fats from Microwave Popcorn. They talked to Popcorn Redenbacher's who already stopped use of Trans Fats back in 2006. It took them six years to change their product line-up to become Trans Fat free. If the measure goes through Redenbacher's has quite a head start. It is amazing how much effort goes into making a product like Microwave Popcorn. We do not think about how complicated processed food has become.
