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:

Chartwells has made significant changes to the foods we offer in order to reduce the harmful effects of artificial trans fat on the health of Canadians. All oil and margarine contain less than 2% trans fat. For all other foods, Chartwells is compliant with the recommendation that total trans fat content be limited to 5% of fat content.

Eateries run by the School of Tourism and Hospitality use deep fryer oil that is 100% trans fat free

FSU run eateries (Oasis and Outback Shack) use oil with less than 2% (approximately 1.4%) tran-fats
