Frito-Lay recently announced it is reducing saturated fat in its leading potato chip brand, Lay’s, by more than 50 percent by switching to NuSun™ sunflower oil, a heart healthy oil – all without compromising taste. In addition to reducing the saturated fats, the move to NuSun sunflower oil increases the mono- and polyunsaturated fats, commonly known as “good fats.” As with Frito-Lay’s entire portfolio of snack chips, Lay’s potato chips continue to have 0 grams of trans fat.
