Ingredients and Formulation: Processors Prepare for Reformulation War on PHOs

Producers are preparing for a possible reformulation war pending the FDA’s final announcement that partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) and trans fats in processed foods no longer are “generally recognized as safe” (GRAS).

The American Baking Association called the ban “unlawful and unnecessary” in its comment response asking FDA to modify the ban.
