Taco Bell Asks You to Think Outside the Trans Fat

Do you frequently run for the border like Britney? Good news because your Taco Bell feasts are about to get a lot better for you (well, as better for you as Taco Bell can get). Taco Bell just announced that they will be switching from the partially hydrogenated soybean oil that they have been using for frying purposes in the past, to zero grams trans fat canola oil. The transition should be in place for all Taco Bell restaurants by April 2007.

The change follows KFC's announcement that they will be switching, in order to ensure the same flavor profile across menu items at multi brand restaurants, such as KFC/Taco Bell locations as well as a recent proposal by health officials to ban trans fat in all restaurants nationwide.

I'm always highly suspicious of the 'health' changes fast food restaurants make.. since 1. seeing Super size me, and 2. finding out that the 'healthy' McDonalds salads I was eating A LOT have more fat in them than a Big Mac :MOB: I know that has to do with the salad dressing but still..
