No excuse for this much trans fat
on June 17, 2009
Big Train's mixes taste pretty good, but there's no excuse for the huge amounts of trans fat they contain. Partially hydrogenated coconut oil -- pure trans fat -- is listed as one of the first ingredients! (The nutritional information posted by Amazon must be for a different product, because it incorrectly claims that the product contains zero trans fat... not possible with that ingredient list.) According to a nutritionist friend, even made with skim milk they are, nutritionally, heart attack city. (I'm surprised that they haven't changed their formulas simply so that they can be sold in the city of New York.) And I don't want Big Train to give me a big caboose. So, I'm holding off on buying more of this. I'll mix up my own smoothies until they make their product more healthy.
