U.K. Food Companies Promise To Cut Megatons Of Sat-Fats From Products

October 26, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
The British government has wheedled new pledges out of food manufacturers and supermarkets to cut the saturated fat content of their processed foods and snacks. This despite a recent study by a cardiologist published in the British Medical Journal advising that the real problem in the rise of diabetes and heart disease is not saturated fat but excess sugar. Supermarket chain Tesco promised to remove 32 tons of fat from breadsticks and other products; Morrisons will reformulate its spreads to remove 50 tons of sat-fats; Sainsbury's will continue an ongoing program to cut sat-fats; Kraft snack unit Mondelez will reformulate belVita, Oreos and Barny cookies; and Nestlé pledged to extract 3,800 tons of sat-fats from KitKat bars.
