Monsanto is working on transfat-free soybean oil [St. Louis Post-Dispatch courtesy of Monsanto] The problem is that this:
Soybean oil has traits that produce flakier pie crusts, smoother cookie cream, better margarine and tastier chips -- traits that other oils might not be able to match.
is either a lie or irrelevant. Lard makes better pie crust. Margarine is useless. Peanut or corn oil makes better chips, and even if you use soy oil there is no reason to hydrogenate it. Perfect example of "scientific" ass-backwards approach to "nutrition".
