The FDA plans to put a ban on Trans Fats in various food items on store shelves. What would microwave popcorn taste like minus the Trans Fats? Would the consumers be willing to sacrifice on taste in order to benefit health-wise?
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 foodsupplyover 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 badcholesterol 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.
