WHO releases Replace for elimination of industrially-produced trans-fats
May 16, 2018
The World Health Organization (WHO) released Replace, a step-by-step guide for the elimination of industrially-produced trans-fatty acids from the global food supply.
Eliminating trans-fats is the key to protecting health and saving lives. WHO estimates that every year, trans-fat intake leads to over 5,00,000 deaths of people from cardiovascular disease.
Industrially-produced trans fats are contained in hardened vegetable fats, such as margarine and ghee, and are often present in snack foods, baked foods and fried foods.
Manufacturers often use them as they have a longer shelf life than other fats. But healthier alternatives can be used that would not affect the taste or cost of the food.
WHO calls on governments to use the Replace action package to eliminate industrially-produced trans-fatty acids from the food supply, said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, director general, WHO.
Implementing the six strategic actions in the Replace package will help achieve the elimination of trans-fat, and represent a major victory in the global fight against cardiovascular disease, he added.
Replace provides six strategic actions to ensure the prompt, complete and sustained elimination of industrially-produced trans-fats from the food supply. These are as follows:
REview dietary sources of industrially-produced trans-fats and the landscape for required policy change.
Promote the replacement of industrially-produced trans-fats with healthier fats and oils.
Legislate or enact regulatory actions to eliminate industrially-produced trans-fats.
Assess and monitor trans-fat content in the food supply and changes in trans-fat consumption in the population.
Create awareness of the negative health impact of trans-fats among policy makers, producers, suppliers and the public.
