WHO esittää elintarviketeollisuudelle TEOLLISTEN transrasvojen eliminointia vuoteen 2023 mennessä:WHO for eliminating industrially produced trans fats by 2023
Trans fat, also called the worst form of fat in food, responsible for over 5,00,000 deaths globally from coronary heart disease each year, could be eliminated from the industrially produced global food supply by 2023 if the World Health Organization (WHO) has its way.
The WHO has welcomed its partnership with the International Food and Beverage Alliance (IFBA) to achieve this target. It said: “Eliminating industrially produced trans fat is one of the simplest and most effective ways to save lives and create a healthier food supply.”
