Does the institution use frying oil that does not include trans-fats and seek to avoid foods that include trans-fats in its dining operations?:

A brief description of the trans-fats avoidance program, policy, or practice:

Dining Services' standard practice is to use zero trans-fat free frying oil. In cooking, butter (zero-trans fat) is used vs. margarine. All soup bases except gumbo are made with water or butter, so the bases are zero-trans fat as well.

Dining Servies partners with Utz for salted snack items, all of which are zero-trans fat. Pop-chip, another snack brand, is available and also zero-trans fat.

We have worked with our current vending service provider, Canteen, to ensure that each snack vending machine offers some non-trans-fat, healthy snack options. We are currently on the waiting list for their "2BU" snack machine, which features all-natural, healthy snacks and beverages.
