There are two main requirements with respect to trans-free fat compositions: on the one hand the functional specification relating to the actual product application; on the other hand even though the TFA are eliminated, the formulation should not compromise the overall nutritional value of the composition. Furthermore one has to take into account that, for the successful elimination of TFA, time is also an important parameter. Immediate solutions can not afford to be registered as novel foods or suffer from long clearance procedures. Lastly, it is not very likely that the consumer will be willing to pay a premium for TFA-free products because the elimination of TFA is not an additional benefit but more a correction of the status quo driven by general consensus.
