Recently, the FDA complained about the KIND brand’s use of the word “healthy” on their bars. The reason, they cited, was that the bars contained too much fat to be considered healthy. Currently, 3g per serving of fat is the maximum amount for healthy food. With nuts as the main ingredient for KIND bars, they were not considered FDA healthy. However, after reviewing their complaint, the FDA allowed KIND to use the word. They are also revising their definition of healthy foods to encompass more plant-based fats, like nuts, seeds, and avocados!

The FDA’s dietary guidelines seem to be getting better!

What is your favorite plant-based fat?
