SCARBOROUGH — The Maine-based supermarket chain that launched a gold-star rating system for food nutrition says it has eliminated trans fat from its private label products.

Hannaford says the recipes of nearly 300 items have been modified to eliminate the addition of artery-clogging trans fat, which includes partially hydrogenated vegetable oils.

Julie Greene, Hannaford’s director of healthy living, says the changes mean customers can save money while still making healthy choices.

In addition, the company has added an online tool that lets customers personalize, save and print store-specific shopping lists.
Hannaford operates 174 stores across Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New York and Vermont.
