Did you know that the Veterans Canteen Service uses trans fat free cooking oils and spreads to prepare foods in food courts nationwide?
Trans fats are created when hydrogen is added to liquid vegetable oils. Consumption of trans fats raises bad cholesterol (LDL) and lowers healthy cholesterol (HDL) leading to an increased risk for heart disease and stroke. The VCS has been using trans fat free cooking oils for several years and recently switched all margarine products to trans fat free spreads so that trans fats can be eliminated from the cooking process. There is little to no taste difference in the final product and our customers enjoy much healthier food as a result.
The Veterans Canteen Service is working to eliminate pre-processed food items containing trans fat so that facilities can be trans fat free by 2011.
