So, what is non-hydrogenated vegetable fat?

Non-hydrogenated vegetable fat is a plant-based ingredient that is commonly used as a healthier alternative to hydrogenated oils. It is made by pressing or extracting oils from various vegetables, such as soybeans, sunflowers, or palm fruits. Unlike hydrogenated fats, which are processed to extend their shelf life, non-hydrogenated vegetable fats are not chemically altered, making them a better option for those looking to reduce their intake of trans fats. This type of fat is versatile and can be used in a variety of applications, including baking, frying, and cooking. Its neutral flavor profile and smooth texture make it a popular ingredient in many food products, such as margarine, spreads, and baked goods.
