So, what is graisse de palme hydrogenee?

"Graisse de palme hydrogenee" is a French term that refers to hydrogenated palm oil. This ingredient is commonly used in food production as a substitute for natural fats to improve texture, shelf life, and stability. Hydrogenation is a process that involves the addition of hydrogen to liquid vegetable oils to solidify them. However, this process can also lead to the formation of trans fats, which have been linked to increased risk of heart disease. Despite this, hydrogenated palm oil is still widely used in many processed foods due to its low cost and versatility.
