Trans Fats Walk the Plank at Long John Silver’s

Long John Silver’s announced its entire menu of fish, chicken, sides, and desserts now boasts zero grams of trans fat. Today’s announcement follows an LJS pledge last August to transition all of its U.S. restaurants to trans fat–free cooking oil by the end of 2013. The company changed its cooking oil to 100 percent soybean oil and made other menu adjustments to remove trans fat from its entire menu.

Long John Silver’s Debuts Dippin’ Fish Strips

Just Desserts

Baked desserts aren’t always at the forefront of customers’ dining decisions, but that doesn’t mean they need to be an afterthought. Cookies, cakes, pies, and other sweets have made their way onto menus of all types of limited-service restaurants, giving operators additional sales opportunities during lunch, dinner, and, increasingly, snacking periods.

Long John Silver’s Makes the Switch to Trans Fat–Free Oils

Long John Silver’s announced that the seafood chain has begun switching all U.S. restaurants to trans fat–free cooking oil. Long John Silver’s restaurants in states or cities with trans fat–free laws converted several years ago, and the remainder will be fully trans fat free by the end of this year.

Next month, Long John Silver’s restaurants that are transitioning will begin using trans fat–free cooking oil for non-batter-dipped products. This includes french fries, hushpuppies, clams, crab cakes, catfish, and all breaded seafood products.
