Hydrogenated Oil

Hydrogenated oil is the process of forcing hydrogen gas into oil at high pressure & temp. It’s used to take the place of butter in many baked items because it makes the oil solid at room temperature & prevents it from going rancid. Hydrogenated oil contains toxic trans fatty acids, which contribute to heart disease, cancer, MS, diabetes, allergies, weight gain, arthritis and many other conditions. Some of the things that contain hydrogenated oils are crackers, cookies, frozen waffles, pudding, peanut butter, cereal & granola bars, prepared frozen foods, canned & powdered soups, & salad dressings.  It’s likely that you’re already reading labels and keeping hydrogenated & partially hydrogenated oils out of your diet… Great!
