Partially Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil is chemically processed oil in which hydrogen is added to liquid oils to turn them into a solid form. Partial hydrogenation on oil results in a lower level of saturated fatty acids formed in the product. It helps the stability of the fats in processed foods and also allows them to stay fresh longer.
