The Steak n Shake Company (NYSE:SNS) is now using frying oil with 0 grams trans fat per serving in all 478 restaurants throughout 19 states.

"As one of America's oldest restaurant chains, Steak n Shake is dedicated to serving our loyal customers with the same great taste they have come to expect while working to eliminate added trans fats," said Steak n Shake's Chief Marketing Officer Steven Schiller.

Steak n Shake's long term plan is to remove added trans fats from the menu wherever possible. In the coming months, Steak n Shake will continue to identify options for food products that are made without added trans fats.

"Incorporating frying oil with 0 grams trans fat is one step in a series of initiatives to respond to growing concerns about health and healthy eating in the U.S.," Schiller said.

The Steak n Shake menu currently includes many food items that have 0 grams trans fat such as its namesake Steakburgers and Milk Shakes. Nutritional information for all Steak n Shake menu items can be found in the online nutritional guide at http://www.steaknshake.com/. Updated nutritional information showing trans fat and sugar content will be added to the web site during August 2007.
