So, what is fully hydrogenated sunflower oil?

Fully hydrogenated sunflower oil is a type of oil that has undergone a process of hydrogenation, which involves the addition of hydrogen atoms to the oil's unsaturated fats. This results in a more stable and solid texture, making it suitable for use in food products such as baked goods and snack foods. Unlike partially hydrogenated oils, which contain trans fats, fully hydrogenated sunflower oil is trans-fat-free, making it a healthier option. It also has a high smoke point and a neutral flavor, making it a versatile ingredient in cooking and frying.
