McDonald’s to Finally Use Oils Free of Trans Fats

After seven years of testing different oil varieties, McDonald’s – perhaps the largest fast food chain in the world – has finally began cooking french fries using oils free of trans fats in some restaurants.

Spokesperson Walt Riker says more than 1,200 McDonald’s restaurants in the United States have began using the new oil. He did specify which locations in particular or when the other 12,500 U.S. locations would introduce the oil.

Trans fats are artificially created fats that have no nutritional value. They have been shown to increase the risk of heart disease by raising the body’s ratio of “bad” (LDL) to “good” (HDL) cholesterol.

Seven years was spent testing over 50 blends of 18 different varieties of oil before finally settling on the current oil. Back in 2002, the restaurant said it would introduce a new oil but within a few months, that promise was retracted because a new oil’s possible taste effects raised some concerns. Riker now says those concerns have since been allayed.

“We’re very confident in our test and taste results,” he said.

A New York City ordinance that bans any use of trans fats in restaurants starting July 1 may have triggered this move.

In the past, McDonald’s has been criticized for procrastinating in changing its oil while other fast-food chains, such as Taco Bell and Wendy’s changed theirs.

Many people may be applauding McDonald’s for making the change. Those people however, are probably not aware that the company spent seven years stalling for as much time as they could.

They say they were concerned about the taste of a new oil. What about the concern of the people who’s money you’re taking every day? I wouldn’t eat McDonald’s if you paid me for every bite I took. You simply can’t put a price on your health, even though they did for seven years.

Your best bet is to completely avoid ALL fast food and start consuming organic foods instead, which will benefit your health instead of putting you at risk.
