Finally, big (food) business is getting the message — GET the TRANS FATS OUT!!! Recently, Unilever announced they are removing ALL hydrogenated oils from their “soft spreads.” That is huge! The reason being, many consumers are deceived by the current labeling laws, which allow a food manufacturer to claim “0 grams trans fat” per serving if it has .5 gram or less per serving. But Smart Balance is probably to thank for pressuring its competitor into removing the trans fats, but they (Smart Balance) most likely did not expect Unilever to go all the way and remove hydrogenated oils completely from Country Crock and I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter! Wooooo Hoooo! I don’t care who’s to thank or blame. It’s a really positive step toward helping Americans regain their health without having an advanced degree in nutrition or analyzing every darn label of every food item!
Life is meant to be fun, and that requires having good health first and foremost. When you feel great, anything is possible. Balancing busy lives with healthy lifestyles is my goal.
