So, what is gehärtetes palmöl?

Gehärtetes Palmöl, also known as hydrogenated palm oil, is a type of vegetable oil that has been chemically processed to make it more solid and stable at room temperature. This process involves the addition of hydrogen atoms to the oil, which changes its physical properties and extends its shelf life. Widely used in the food industry as a cheap alternative to natural oils, gehärtetes palmöl is commonly found in baked goods, margarine, and snack foods. However, concerns have been raised about the health risks associated with consuming large amounts of this ingredient, including an increased risk of heart disease and high cholesterol.
