Trans fats have been an increasing problem in our country for a while now. What exactly ARE trans fats? The American Heart Association gives us this definition of what they are: "Trans fats (or trans fatty acids) are created in an industrial process that adds hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to make them more solid. Another name for trans fats is 'partially hydrogenated oils'. Look for them on the ingredient list on food packages"
Mindful Options, a new line of food being served by Sodexo Food Services, has made its way to the Dining Commons (DC) at Greenville College this fall. When Greenville students returned to school after summer vacation this year, they were probably expecting the same old food in the Dining Commons as last year. A lot of students can be heard complaining about the DC food, if not about the poor quality, than about the repetition of the same meals served again and again. But the Sodexo staff had a surprise in store: a new line in the DC called Mindful Options.
