How soon will products made with olestra be available on the market?
And where on the web can I find this information on a daily basis to keep abreast of the progress of getting Olestra products on the grocery store shelves?
Olestra, a synthetic fat product that tastes and cooks like fat, but isn't absorbed and hence can be viewed as being non-caloric, was approved by the FDA for limited use in January, 1996. Frito-Lay began their test marketing of Max chips with olestra (Olean), April 22, 1996.
See the Olean website, which has a feedback capability to ask specific questions.
