Food labels to include information on trans fats in US

o rising health concerns, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) set the new labeling requirements in 2003. Many food labels already contain trans fat listings. companies have rolled out their new labels as their supplies of old ones ran out.

But not every new label will be in place on Sunday, as stores use up products with old labels. The idea behind the labeling is to give consumers more information they can use to make healthier choices. To find trans fats, when they're listed, look under the "Saturated Fat" listing, just under the "Total Fat" heading.

Also, some trans fat content can still receive a zero trans fat listing under the new rules, even if a hydrogenated oil is an ingredient. If a food has less than 0.5 grams of fat per serving and makes no claims about fat content, manufacturers can skip the label. If a product simply has less than 0.5 grams of trans fat, the FDA allows a company to list its trans fat content as zero.

Trans fat awareness has also made companies to remove it from their own foods, fearing that consumers may not eat trans fatty products once they know their content. Frito-Lay and Kraft, among food companies, have dramatically reduced the number of products they sell that contain trans fats.

Food activists are calling for labeling in restaurants. Restaurants have also jumped on the no-trans wagon. Panera Bread is switching from partially hydrogenated oil in its baked goods to butter and palm oil.

Food advocate groups are pushing for more regulation. The Center for Science in the Public Interest, a Washington-based watchdog group that has roots in Ralph Nader-led advocacy, is calling for labeling of trans fat on restaurant menus - doughnuts, french fries and other popular restaurant items are also high in trans fats, and right now aren't regulated.

Many groups are pushing for directions to restaurants that choose trans fat-laden cooking oils over healthier alternatives to add h
