University of North Dakota swaps creamers for healthier version

Even though students were OK with the old creamer having trans fat, dining services will replace it with a trans fat-free option.

UND Dining Services plans to replace a popular coffee creamer found at Stomping Grounds despite students opinion on a recent survey.

Carnation creamer, a self service creamer, used in coffee drinks has been reported to contain .5 grams per serving of partially hydrogenated oil, which contains trans fat. Last fall, the FDA announced that hydrogenated oil is generally unsafe in food, has no health benefits, is linked to heart disease and recommends people do not consume it.  Although the FDA does not require coffee shops to stop the use of carnation creamer yet, Dining Services thought maybe they should stop offering it to customers.
