F3(a). Non use of Artificial Trans Fat
1 January, 2013
Submitted: 27 January, 2012
Mitchellss and Butlers and our suppliers have been working hard over several years to remove not only artificial trans fats but all fully and partially hydrogenated vegetable fats from our products. All our frying oils and dishes in each of our brands (which include Harvester, All Bar One, Toby Carvery, O'Neils and Sizzling Pubs) are free from partially and fully hydrogenated vegetable fats, and thereby all artificial trans fats which are a by product of the partial hydrogenation of oils. This initiative is part of our wider commitment to encourage and enable a healthier diet amongst our guests and to help minimise the health risks of raised LDL cholesterol and heart disease that have been associated with consuming artificial trans fats. We believe that neither artificial trans fats, nor hydrogenated fats are necessary in food products and therefore our suppliers and development chefs now always use alternative ingredients, whilst ensuring that taste and quality are never compromised.
