The D’Andrea Brothers submitted their new zero-trans-fat energy bar formulation for formal MRE evaluation in 2005.  It was accepted as meeting MRE standards.  And then it won a bunch of Warfighter field tests.  But the zero-trans-fat solution has never been put into an MRE, while trans fat bars continue to be supplied to troops in MREs.

52 Soldiers at Fort Polk, LA, rated the benefit of each bar they used in the field
