So, what is grasa vegetal hidrógenada?

"Grasa vegetal hidrogenada" is a food ingredient that is commonly used in the production of various processed foods. It is a type of fat that is produced by adding hydrogen to vegetable oil to make it solid at room temperature. This process creates a more stable and shelf-stable fat that is resistant to rancidity, which makes it ideal for use in baked goods, snacks, and confectionery products. However, the consumption of this ingredient has been linked to adverse health effects, including an increased risk of heart disease, due to its high levels of trans fats. Therefore, it is important to limit its intake and opt for healthier alternatives.
