So, what is fully hydrogenated coconut fat?

Fully hydrogenated coconut fat is a type of fat that is derived from coconut oil. Through the hydrogenation process, coconut oil is transformed into a solid form, which makes it easier to use in food production. Fully hydrogenated coconut fat has a high melting point, which makes it ideal for use in baked goods, confectionery, and margarine. It is also free from trans fats, which have been associated with an increased risk of heart disease. The use of fully hydrogenated coconut fat in food production adds a creamy texture and rich flavor to many products, making it a popular ingredient among food manufacturers.
