Starbucks Bounces Trans Fat

Well you can add Starbucks to the list of restaurants saying no to trans fat. According to Curt Woodward of the Associated Press, Starbucks is cutting trans fat from their doughnuts, muffins, and other treats. More from the report:
The world's largest specialty coffee retailer has been working to eliminate trans fats from its food menu for about two years, spokesman Brandon Borrman said today.

"This is just something we have been working on, and our focus has always been on providing our customers with healthy and nutritious food options," Borrman said.

Trans fats, listed on food labels as partially hydrogenated vegetable oil, are believed to be harmful because they wreak havoc on cholesterol levels.
