FDA scientists reviewed many different studies when they evaluated whether to allow health claims for monounsaturated fat on food labels in 2003. The researchers wanted to ensure that a proposed recommendation to eat 13.5 grams one tablespoon of olive oil per day wouldn't contribute to weight gain in the American population.
