business news in context, analysis with attitude

Illustrating that the rush to get rid of trans fats from America’s foods hasn’t lost any steam, Burger King announced Friday that it will use trans-fat-free cooking oil at all its US restaurants by the end of 2008.
KC's View:
The downside of this decision is that by removing the trans fats, Burger King’s products will have absolutely no flavor.

The upside – the company reportedly believes it can return actual flavor to its foods by the end of 2010 or early 2011. Maybe.
