Oil Alternatives

No, not petroleum –cooking oil. Or, more precisely, fast food cooking grease. Here’s yet another fast food place saying an alternative to the high fat junk they cook their food in is just around the corner.

This time it’s KFC:
LOUISVILLE, Kentucky (AP) -- A doctor and a consumer group have sued KFC in an effort to stop the chicken chain from cooking with high-fat partially hydrogenated oil.


KFC spokeswoman Laurie Schalow called the lawsuit frivolous and said the company will fight it in court. Schalow said KFC is looking at using other types of oil for cooking, but it is committed to maintaining "KFC's unique taste and flavor."
Yeah, sure it’s looking. Looking real hard, I’m sure.

Once again, the main culprit is trans fats. I still say get rid of them.
