I am from Philly, and I am glad there is going to be a ban, despite the up rise among the mom&pop bakeries, saying that eliminating trans-fat from their recipes will hinder the product and taking this as a personal attack on small business. But I think this is a chance for Philadelphia to no longer be the ugliest city in America. haha.

The best way to avoid trans fat is to just avoid processed food. Any whole food has zero trans fat by default.

Actually - if they have less than 0.5 grams then they will be labeled 0 (not 0.9999999)

Yeah, most people don't know that a product can have up to .99999 gram of trans fat (just under 1 gram), but they can still list "0 grams trans fat" on the label. At the end of the day, all those "0 grams trans fat" can add up to 3 or 4 or more! Make sure you read the ingredient list every time and put anything back on the shelf that contains the words "partially hydrogenated" in one of its ingredients.
