So, what is teilweise gehärtetes pflanzenfett?

"Teilweise gehärtetes Pflanzenfett" is a processed vegetable fat that has undergone partial hydrogenation, resulting in a semi-solid texture. This ingredient is commonly used in food production as a cheaper alternative to butter and other fats, as it can be easily blended with other ingredients and provides a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. However, partially hydrogenated fats have been linked to increased risk of heart disease and other health issues, leading many consumers to seek out alternatives. As such, food manufacturers are increasingly turning to fully hydrogenated or non-hydrogenated oils to meet consumer demand for healthier options.
