So, what is partially hydrogenated sunflower oil?

Partially hydrogenated sunflower oil is a popular food ingredient that is derived from sunflower seeds. It is a type of oil that has been chemically modified by adding hydrogen to it. This process results in a semi-solid texture that is often used in baked goods, such as cookies, crackers, and pastries. Partially hydrogenated sunflower oil is often preferred by manufacturers because it has a longer shelf life than other oils and can improve the texture and flavor of their products. However, it is important to note that consuming too much of this ingredient has been linked to negative health effects, such as heart disease and high cholesterol levels.
