So, what is olio di palma idrogenato?

"Olio di palma idrogenato" is an Italian term that refers to hydrogenated palm oil, a common food ingredient used in many processed foods. This oil is created by adding hydrogen to liquid palm oil, which transforms it into a solid form. It's often used as a substitute for trans fats due to its similar properties and low cost. However, it's also controversial due to concerns about the environmental impact of palm oil production and its potential negative health effects. Some studies suggest that consumption of hydrogenated oils may increase the risk of heart disease and other health issues.
