In keeping with the mission to protect and promote the health of the citizens of Albany County, the use of artificial trans fats in local restaurants and other food service establishments in Albany County was eliminated in 2009. Limiting overall fat intake and eliminating trans fat is part of a heart healthy diet.
Trans fat is the most dangerous type of dietary fat. It increases LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and decreases HDL ("good") cholesterol in the body, thereby promoting heart disease.
The elimination of trans fat will not change the flavor of your favorite restaurant items, but instead will promote a healthier dining experience!
