So, what is geheel geharde palm?

Geheel geharde palm is a type of vegetable fat commonly used in the food industry. It is made from palm oil that has undergone a process called "hydrogenation", which involves adding hydrogen to the oil to make it more solid at room temperature. This process also gives the oil a longer shelf life and increases its stability at high temperatures, making it a popular ingredient in processed foods. Geheel geharde palm is often used in baked goods, snacks, and margarine. However, it has been criticized for its high levels of saturated fats, which can contribute to heart disease and other health issues.
