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.
