New 'Body-Friendly' Fat Substitute

What

A news briefing will be held on a new dietary fat substitute that government scientists say will be good for your heart. The new product, to be marketed as "Nu-Trim," contains high concentrations of beta-glucans, soluble fibers found in oats and barley that are known to lower LDL cholesterol and total cholesterol, factors which have been linked to heart disease. Also featured will be a report on how Nu-Trim performed in cookies prepared by Oak State Products, which produces cookies for several major food marketers.
