— For people trying to banish trans fat from their diets, dining out can be a big problem.

Products free of trans fat are rapidly appearing in supermarket snack aisles, but the fried chicken and french fries ordered in restaurants usually are cooked in shortening or oil containing trans fat.

“Unfortunately, the restaurant industry has almost become addicted to them because it’s sort of the cheap and easy thing to do,” said Dr. Walter Willett, a Harvard University scivolo gonfiabile nutrition expert. “There now are alternatives that are available, and restaurants just need to take their customers’ health to heart.”
