Is hydrogenated soybean oil a trans fat?

Depends HOW Done: The vast majority of c-c bonds in all 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-. See google images. Plant fats more double bonds & liquid, than animal, more solid, but this does not mean healthier: ancel keys fraudulent. ...Read more

Is soybean oil the same as soybeans in which it would be bad to eat if you have kidney stones?

Is soybean oil the same as soybeans in which it would be bad to eat if you have kidney stones?

Oxalate: Oxalate is the culprit in beans; the solid soy bean has more oxalate than soy oil, for sure; so eating soy beans will more likely increase stone potential compared to soy oil, which you may use in cooking or on a salad. The oxalate rich foods are: beets, spinach, rhubarb, strawberries, nuts, chocolate, tea, wheat bran, and all dry beans; minimize these; drink 3-4 liters fluid per day; ...Read more

Too much is not good because it raises the bad cholesterol. ...Read more

Does saturated fat mean the same thing as hydrogenated oil?

Different: Hydrogenation adds hydrogen ions to vegetable oil that is unsaturated & makes it more saturated. This is done to lengthen it’s shelf life but also causes the liquid to solidify. Saturated fats like butter, lard, fatback & solid shortening (are naturally in this solid form). ...Read more
