So, what is partially hydrogenated soyabean oil?

Partially hydrogenated soybean oil is a commonly used food ingredient that is derived from soybeans. This oil undergoes a process of partial hydrogenation, which changes its chemical structure and increases its stability, making it a popular choice for food manufacturers. The hydrogenation process also gives the oil a semi-solid texture, making it ideal for use in baked goods, fried foods, and other processed foods. However, partially hydrogenated soybean oil is high in trans fats, which have been linked to an increased risk of heart disease. As a result, many health experts recommend limiting its consumption and opting for healthier alternatives such as olive oil or coconut oil.
