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?:
Yes

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

The oils used at UC San Diego in production, including frying oil, are trans-fat free. UC San Diego seeks to avoid trans-fats in all recipes; the campus purchases only trans-fat free margarines and uses butter or oil only when appropriate. UC San Diego also strives to make the majority of our dishes from scratch and to avoid using convenience products that contain trans-fats. UC San Diego’s retail stores and markets are also providing trans-fat free packaged foods options, such as Newman’s Own and other varieties.
