Ok, so we've all heard about trans fat and how bad they are for you.
I always thought that Crisco was trans fat personified. I was at BJ's today and saw a large tub of Crisco and in huge letters said "0 trans fat per serving". I went...
I read the ingredients, fully hydrogenated fat is there, how can they claim no trans fat?! I don't get it, is it the thing with the FDA that if it's less than 1 gm they can claim "0"???
I always thought for sure that Crisco was ALL trans fat. Not that I ever bought or used it, neither do I plan to start using it, but I was shocked that it said that on the label.
Frankly I'm amazed they still allow trans fat to be used commercially for food.
Anyway, just thought I'd share my shock.
