Trans Fats

Crisco eliminates trans fat

Did you know that when it debuted in 1911, Crisco, the queen (oops; sexist reference) of trans fat products, was hailed as a healthful alternative to butter and lard.

Times have changed, and Crisco has eliminated trans fats from its formula.

This doesn’t automatically mean it’s healthy. We’ll see if the change is for the better.
