Microwave Popcorn to Lose Trans Fats

The makers of microwave popcorn are facing a tough road ahead. The thing is that it is the Trans Fats that make the microwavable popcorn delicious to eat. Take that very unhealthy component away and you obviously sacrifice on taste. But if the FDA bans all Trans Fats from comestibles than the microwave popcorn brands will have to act and fast

The FDA is doing this for the good of the nation which is already filled with too many obese people. It claims that by ending Trans Fats in the food supply over 7000 lives will be saved from all sorts of deadly ailments each year. 

Americans are fond of their popcorn and the majority is eaten domestically after being cooked in the microwave. However, this otherwise scrumptious food contains a high level of Trans Fats which cause heart disease and raise triglyceride levels. One of the companies has gone so far as to eliminate Trans Fats in all its products

But the company execs say that it took a lot of creativity and cash to come up with a brand of microwave popcorn without any Trans Fats in it. Trans Fats also increase bad cholesterol so they had to go. The major issue was the flavor which was maintained at all costs. Other agencies have also acted on this advice.
