So, what is matière grasse végetale hydrogénée?

"Matière grasse végétale hydrogénée" is a food ingredient that refers to vegetable fats that have undergone a hydrogenation process, resulting in a solid or semi-solid consistency at room temperature. This type of fat is widely used in the food industry due to its ability to extend shelf life and improve texture in processed foods such as baked goods, margarine, and snack foods. However, there are concerns over its health implications as it can contain high levels of trans fats - which are associated with heart disease and other health issues. It is important to carefully read food labels and limit consumption of foods containing this ingredient.
