F3(a). Non use of Artificial Trans Fat
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 19 December, 2011
Progressive reformulation over a number of years had already removed most artificial trans fats (partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, or phvos) from our products. We can confirm that the branded food products that we manufacture do not contain PHVOs. We also ensure that the level of trans-fats that occur in oils and fats we supply for the preparation of food, for example frying oil, are limited to a maximum of 2%; as specified within the terms of this pledge. Our analysis indicates that typical levels within oils and fats are 0.5% or less.
