Healthy Heart Avoid Trans Fat


									On December 5, 2006, the Board of Health approved an amendment to the
Health Code to phase out artificial trans fat in all NYC restaurants and
other food service establishments. It is in full effect.
The phase out of artificial trans fat in restaurant foods took effect in
two stages. First, as of July 1, 2007, NYC food service establishments
have been prohibited from using oils, shortening and margarine containing
artificial trans fat for frying or as a spread that have 0.5 grams or
more of trans fat per serving. As of July 1, 2008, all foods must have
less than 0.5 grams of trans fat per serving if they have any artificial
trans fat. Packaged foods served in the manufacturer's original, sealed
packaging are exempt.
