Farewell to Trans Fats

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration announced today its determination that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs), the primary dietary source of artificial trans fat in processed foods, are not “generally recognized as safe” or GRAS for use in human food. 
The agency will give food manufacturers three years to reformulate products or petition permission for specific PHO uses. Following the compliance period, no PHOs will be allowed to be added to human food unless they otherwise approved by the agency.  
Many Ready to Eat (RTE) products currently on store shelves will require reformulation or discontinuation all together in order to comply with this new regulation. RTE frostings are just one category that will require significant revamping. Do you have baking products you need to reformulate? We can help! Raymond-Hadley's dry baking mixes are already compliant - trans fat free!
