Trans Fat Free Scouts
The Girl Scouts are bringing the pain. These seemingly peaceful little girls in the green outfits have no love for trans fat. According to Blogging Baby the Girl Scouts have bounced trans fat from their cookies:
This year, when you're buying your Thin Mints, you can feel even better about helping the Girl Scouts, because those delicious little cookies are now virtually trans-fat free. According to the Girl Scouts organization, the cookies will still taste the same, but they will be more heart-healthy, as long as you eat them in moderation, of course. "If it says zero grams, but contains partially hydrogenated oil, people should know it does contain a little bit of trans fat," says Michael Jacobson, executive director of the Center for Science in the Public Interest. "If somebody ate several servings of those foods a day, someone could consume 2 or 3 grams of trans fat, which is significant."This still doesn’t exactly redeem them—the cookies that is.
