So, what is hydrogenated vegetables oil?

Hydrogenated vegetable oil is a type of oil that has been chemically altered through the process of hydrogenation. This process involves adding hydrogen to the vegetable oil to make it more stable and solid at room temperature, which gives it a longer shelf life and a smoother texture. Hydrogenated vegetable oil is commonly used in the food industry as a substitute for butter and other solid fats, as well as in the production of baked goods, snacks, and fried foods. However, it has been linked to health issues such as increased cholesterol levels and an increased risk of heart disease, leading to a decrease in its use in recent years.
