So, what is partially hydrogenated vegetable fats?

Partially hydrogenated vegetable fats are a type of processed fat commonly found in many processed foods. These fats are created through the process of hydrogenation, which involves adding hydrogen atoms to unsaturated fats in order to make them more solid and stable. Partially hydrogenated vegetable fats have been widely used in the food industry due to their ability to improve the texture and shelf life of products. However, these fats also contain trans fats, which have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. As a result, many health organizations recommend limiting consumption of this ingredient.
