FEDIOL perspective – Hydrogenation in the context of the debate on Trans Fatty Acids (TFA)


Why hydrogenate vegetable oils? And how is it linked to the current TFA debate?

FEDIOL supports the introduction of an EU-wide 2% non-ruminant TFA legal limit on fat basis in products intended to the final consumers together with the deletion of the existing full/partial hydrogenation labelling as prescribed by Regulation (EU) No 1169/2011.
