So, what is fully hydrogenated vegetable fat?

Fully hydrogenated vegetable fat is a type of processed fat that has been chemically altered to transform liquid vegetable oil into a more solid form. This type of fat is commonly used in food processing to improve the texture, consistency, and shelf life of products such as baked goods, snack foods, and margarine. Unlike partially hydrogenated vegetable oils, fully hydrogenated fats do not contain any trans fats, which are known to have negative health effects. However, they are still high in saturated fats, which can contribute to heart disease if consumed in excess.
