Iceland May Minimize Trans Fats

Iceland’s Consumer Association (NS) celebrates a recent parliamentary resolution on banning the sale of certain food products in Iceland that contain a high amount of trans fats and adopting similar regulations on food products as Denmark did five years ago.

NS sent a request to the Ministry of the Environment and the Ministry of Health one year ago, encouraging the then ministers to lobby for adopting regulations on limiting trans fats in food products, DV reports.

If the resolution is accepted, the Ministry of Fisheries and Agriculture will be responsible for issuing regulations on the maximum amount of trans fats in foods, which can be dangerous if they are consumed to excess.
