While the margarine industry began removing trans fats from its products well before the FDA labeling requirement, USB has been and continues to be a valued partner in developing and promoting healthful oils for the food industry, especially with regard to the reduction and elimination of trans fats."

Myers describes milestones in USB's trans fat leadership over the years, including:

  1. "Understanding trans fats' effect on human health": USB was a significant contributor to early studies defining trans fats' effect on health, through research performed at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
  2. "Participating as a founding member of the Trans Fat Coalition": From 1994 to 2006, this group invested in new science, communicated findings to the public and providing timely information to government agencies, such as providing comments to the Dietary Guidelines Advisory Committees and responding to the FDA's requests for comment.
  3. "Mapping the soybean genome": As early as 1995, USB funded research to map the soybean genome and use advanced techniques to improve the bean's fatty acid profile to produce oil without partial hydrogenation (the process that creates trans fats).
  4. "Working with the whole value chain to identify desirable traits for the future": USB assembled experts from all aspects of the industry in 1998 to get input on solutions that would meet their needs. A platform called QUALISOY(TM) emerged to accelerate the development and commercialization of enhanced trait soybeans in the research pipeline.

As a result, food companies today can use low-linolenic soybean oil in light frying, sauces, rolls and pizza dough. Companies are also testing the next generation - increased-oleic soybean oil - for
