Example text

This process is used for two reasons. Firstly, to alter oxidatively unstable fatty acids such as linolenic acid and secondly to produce solid fats, ie margarines and other spreads, from liquid oils. A by-product of the hydrogenation process is the formation of a significant number of trans-double bonds in the fatty acids of the vegetable oil. Although this has been known for many years, it is only relatively recently that medical evidence has begun to accumulate about the possible adverse consequences of high levels of trans- fatty acids in the human diet.
