ASA Responds To FDA Decision On Trans Fats

ASA Responds To FDA Decision On Trans Fats

The Food and Drug Administration has made a preliminary determination that partially hydrogenated oils are not generally recognized as safe for use in food. American Soybean Association President Danny Murphy says the decision could be damaging in the short term for soybean growers depending upon how long the process to ban trans fats from all foods would take.

Murphy says he’s not sure why FDA made this decision and says the vast majority of soybean oil consumed is not partially hydrogenated and is free of trans fats so consumers can be assured of the continued safety and healthfulness of soybean oil and the many food products that contain it.

He says ASA will be submitting comments and will continue to work with industry partners to ensure the health and safety of American consumers.
