So, what is matières grasse végétale?

Matieres grasses vegetale is a French term that translates to "vegetable fats" in English. It refers to fats that are derived from plants rather than animals. Vegetable fats are used in a variety of food products, including margarine, baked goods, and snack foods. They are often used as a substitute for animal fats, such as butter or lard, and can provide a similar texture and flavor. Some common sources of vegetable fats include palm oil, coconut oil, and soybean oil.
