Comment A complete ban, or just less than .5g/serving? (Score 2) 851

Right now, a serving of food can contain .4g of transfats per serving and legally list "0g transfats" on the label.

Does the FDA regulation still allow this, or will partially hydrogenated oils of ANY amount be banned?

It will be interesting to see what coffee creamers like CoffeeMate will do, since they use a tiny 1 teaspoon serving size and are something like 50% trans fats so they can easily say "0 trans fats" on the label. Most people use something like a tablespoon and end up with a gram of a half of the transfats in their coffee.

Because they both compile to IL, VB was forced to add up all the C#/C++ constructs (eg exception handling, etc) and it lost it's "ease of use/newbie" value when it became VB.NET. Don't you remember all of the screaming that non programmers did when they switched? They couldn't follow along.
