Sweden may be moving towards a law limiting industrially produced trans fats in food products, following the lead of several other EU countries.

The demand was driven by the Riksdag's oppositional parties last year, and the National Food Agency (Livsmedelsverket) is now readying a proposal, according to Sveriges Radio (SR).

However, the agency's Lars-Börje Croon told SR that he believes Sweden ought to wait for shared EU rules.

"Shared legislation is better than national rules. It's not a question of some sort of urgent health risk which needs handling," he said.

Awesome proposal. I'm sick of wondering how much of that junk is in the foods I buy.

The sooner trans fats are banned at European level the better.

trans fats aren't just in pre made chips or fried foods, they are in many pastry and other baking products, pizza bases etc..

banning sugar because it's a natural occuring product and much better for you than it's artificial alternatives????

Yeah, sugar just "naturally" occurs in sweets, biscuits and soft drinks.
