The Product List is a resource for food service operators. All products listed meet the trans fat restrictions of 2% or 5% or less trans fat of total fat content in accordance with the BC trans fat regulation.  Only products that fit into one of the following categories are included on the Product List:

  • Liquid Butter Substitutes
  • Low-Stability Vegetable Oils (used for marinades, sautéing, stir-frying and occasional deep fat frying)
  • Mid & High-Stability Vegetable Oils (used for deep fat frying)
  • Shortenings
  • Margarines
  • Animal Fats

The Product List does not constitute an endorsement of one product over another. Products have been listed based upon the percentage of saturated fat and then alphabetically. Choosing the product with the lowest percentage of saturated fat will result in the healthiest end product. This list may not include all products in compliance with the BC trans fat regulation, ask your supplier or check the product label to determine compliance of products not listed. 

If you would like to submit a product that meets the trans fat restrictions and fits into one of the categories listed above, download the Product List Application or email us at restricttransfat@gov.bc.ca.
