Taco Bell to lower use of transfats in its foods

Taco Bell, along with the recent announcement of fast food buddy KFC, will start lowering the amount of trans-fats in its foods soon, according to the nation’s largest tex-mex fast food company.

“This is something we’ve been working on for over two years, and we just believe it’s the right thing and the right changes to make in our products,” said Warren Widicus, Taco Bell’s chief food innovation officer.

It’s great to see that even fast food restaurants and locations are starting to dump unhealthy trans-fats from products since it makes no sense to use trans-fats at all when alternatives exist that can allow fried products without adding trans-fats into the picture.

Even though most fast food restaurants are not exactly serving healthy food, the cutting out of trans-fats at least makes the picture a little brighter for who that choose to eat at these locations.
