So, what is partially hydrogenated soybean oil?

Partially hydrogenated soybean oil is a type of vegetable oil that has undergone a process called hydrogenation, which transforms liquid oils into more stable, solid fats. This process creates trans fats, which have been linked to negative health effects such as an increased risk of heart disease. Despite this, partially hydrogenated soybean oil has been widely used in processed foods due to its low cost and versatility in food manufacturing. However, many food companies have now phased out the use of partially hydrogenated oils in response to health concerns, opting for healthier alternatives instead.
