So, what is vegetable%fat?

Vegetable fat is a plant-based ingredient that is derived from sources such as palm, coconut, or sunflower oil. It is commonly used in food processing and cooking due to its neutral flavor profile and high smoke point. Vegetable fat is popular in vegan and vegetarian diets as a substitute for animal fats like butter or lard. It is also rich in essential fatty acids and vitamin E, which are beneficial for heart health and skin care. However, it is important to note that certain types of vegetable fat, such as hydrogenated oils, can be unhealthy in excess.
