The effort to go trans fat free predates the creation of the Nutrition Advisory Board. "We applaud the Dunkin' Brands Research & Development and Supply Chain teams, who have worked behind the scenes for nearly four years to move toward an entirely zero grams trans fat menu," said Joe Scafido. In 2003, the Dunkin' Brands Research & Development team acted independently to remove artificial trans fat from all muffins and bagels in the Dunkin' Donuts stores. Since then, the team has tested more than 28 alternative oils and proprietary blends and conducted 80 independent tests to find a suitable alternative. The R&D team has already reformulated more than 50 menu items.
