Taco Bell To Cut Trans Fats

From Yahoo News: “Taco Bell will be the latest fast-food chain to cut artery-clogging trans fats from cooking oils in its U.S. restaurants, the company announced Thursday.

The nation’s largest seller of quick service Mexican-style foods uses the oils to fry its nachos, taco salad shells, potatoes, chalupa shells and other items.

“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.”

Wait, We’re sorry… Warren Widicus, Taco Bell’s chief food innovation officer? How hard is that job? Warren, buddy, we need 6 more ways to combine ground beef, lettuce, tomatoes, and a tortilla…. and we need it right now.

It’s either the hardest job in America or the easiest, we can’t tell.

Anyway, yeah. Less trans fats. —MEGHANN MARCO
