Are partially hydrogenated oils infused with trans fats, or does the change occur once inside the body?

Are partially hydrogenated oils infused with trans fats, or does the change occur once inside the body?

No Yet Be Careful: The vast majority of c-c bonds in fats are single, aka saturated (no room for more hydrogen side atoms). If double bonds (unsaturated) present & converted to single bonds by industrial hydrogenation lacking control: ½ cis, ½ trans. All living cells do cis. Ancel keys promoted problem 1953 on: myth that sat. Fats unhealthy by cherry picking data available to him as supporting his theory, not true. ...Read more

How could a food be made with hydrogenated oils, but say it has zero trans fat?

How could a food be made with hydrogenated oils, but say it has zero trans fat?

2 reasons: First, items that list partially hydrogenated oils in the ingredients but contain less than 0.5g of trans fats per serving are considered by the government to be trans-fat free. A good example of this would be commercial peanut butter, which contains a tiny amount of partially hydrogenated oil to prevent separation. Second, products that contain fully hydrogenated oils are trans-fat free. ...Read more

What is the difference of food labels between partially hydrogenated oils and trans-fats?

What is the difference of food labels between partially hydrogenated oils and trans-fats?

Careful-Lots of Hype: Hydrogenated means hydrogen atoms added to break c-c double bonds (unsaturated) to single bonds, aka saturated (no room for more hydrogen). If partial, then some double carbon-carbon bonds still present. Living cells make only cis-bonds. Vast majority of c-c bonds in all fats are single. The myth that sat. Fats were bad: ancel keys 1953, has driven obesity, dm & cv ds. Study gary taubes, nusi.Org. ...Read more

What is "partially hydrogenated soybean oil"?

Hydrogenation: Soybean oil is too unstable to be used in manufacturing, so companies "hydrogenate" it [forcing hydrogen gas into it at high pressure) to extend its shelf life. Voila -- partially hydrogenated soybean oil. Unfortunately this process also makes trans fats -- not good for your heart or blood vessels.

What is hydrogenated soybean oil?

What is hydrogenated soybean oil?

A bad processed fat.: Soybean oil that is hydrogenated is a cheap fat that is often used in processed foods. It is a "highly saturated" fat, which, along with trans fats, are leading culprit in the development of atherosclerosis and heart disease. We all must avoid these oils and use fats such as omega-3 oils found in fish, or olive oil--which has recently been shown to prolong life as part of the mediterranean diet. ...Read more

If double bonds (unsaturated) present & converted to single bonds by industrial hydrogenation lacking control: ½ cis, ½ trans. All living cells do cis-. See google images.
