THE NEWS WEEKLY OF GRAIN-BASED FOODS JUNE 23, 2015 / F.D.A. finalizes ban on partially hydrogenated oils NEWS FEATURE Growth of Gillian's Foods mirrors gluten-free market surge Story on Page 27 LATE NEWS Vast expense seen from G.M.O. labeling law WASHINGTON - With Vermont's state labeling mandate law for foods with bioengineered ingredients schedule to go into effect in July 2016, the Grocery Manufacturers Association is ratcheting up its calls for Congress to pass federal legislation establishing a uniform food labeling standard. The G.M.A. is challenging the Vermont law in federal court but warned that food manufacturers must plan for its implementation. In the process, they have identified even more costs and challenges, the G.M.A. said. Among more recently emerging concerns is a clause fining food companies up to $1,000 per day if a mislabeled Continued on Page 8 WASHINGTON - The Food and Drug Administration has finalized its determination that partially hydrogenated oils (phos), the primary dietary source of industrially produced trans fat, are not Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) for use in human food, the agency announced June 16. The F.D.A. said there is no longer a consensus among qualified experts that phos are GRAS for use in any human food. Food manufacturers have until June 18, 2018, to remove phos from their products. Any interested party may seek food additive approval for one or more specific uses of phos by providing data demonstrating a reasonable certainty of no harm of the proposed use or uses, according to the F.D.A. "The F.D.A.'s action on this major source of artificial trans fat demonstrates the agency's commitment to the heart health of all Americans," said Stephen Ostroff, M.D., acting commissioner of the F.D.A. "This action is expected to reduce coronary heart disease and prevent thousands of fatal heart attacks every year." Susan Mayne, Ph.D., director of the F.D.A.'s Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition, said, "This determination is based on extensive research into the effects of phos, as well as input from all stakeholders received during the public comment period." The F.D.A. defines phos as those fats and oils that have been hydrogenated, but not to complete or near complete saturation, with an iodine value (IV) greater than 4.

Rodale, and what is his connection to "Wheat Belly" author William Davis? Mr. Rodale's most famous and final moment came in 1971 as a guest on the Dick Cavett Show. A publisher and author, Mr. Rodale in 1968 wrote "Natural Health, Sugar and the Criminal Mind," a book advocating healthy eating and blaming sugar intake for everything from rape to the rise of Nazism. In his interview by Mr. Cavett, Mr. Rodale said he would live to be 100. Moments later he died of a heart attack onstage. Just as many of the myths he espoused survive, Mr. Rodale's business Rodale, Inc. lives on. In addition to such magazines as Prevention, Men's Health and Rodale's Organic Life, Rodale has published a number of best-selling books, including "Wheat Belly." Mr. Rodale and Dr. Davis are but two of dozens and dozens of personalities filling the pages of a brilliant new book by Alan Levinovitz, "The Gluten Lie - and other myths about what you eat." The book is replete with tales of individuals familiar and forgotten. Their Continued on Page 16 http://http://
