Burger King Testing Trans-Fat Free Oils

From the Houston Chronicle:

Fast-food chain Burger King Holdings Inc. on Wednesday said it started testing in its restaurants several trans-fat free cooking oils and plans to roll one out nationwide in late 2008.

Burger King said it has been working for two years to identify a trans-fat free oil, beginning with consumer testing and moving to in-restaurant testing.

Burger King added it will meet New York City trans-fat free requirements, which go into effect in July, before it rolls out the oil nationally.

Trans-fats are, obviously, really really bad for you, and require a lot of testing to replace without changing the taste of food. Then again, Burger King’s fries are already weird tasting. Is it just us? —MEGHANN MARCO
