“Hydrogenated Fatty Acids” – Nutritional Roulette (7/8)

Nutritional Roulette part 7


Hydrogenated Fatty Acids

What it is:

  • Vegetable oil treated with Hydrogen
  • Heated, Pressurized, Gassed with Hydrogen and then is injected with a ‘catalyst’ to increase its density (often aluminum or nickel)

The resultant oil is Thicker

– and will actually slow down blood flow via thickening your blood!

Which forces your cardiovascular system to work really hard

– Simply digesting becomes a workout, which is NOT a good state to be in because it increases risk of heart failure and stroke.

These oils “confuse the body’s cells”
  • because they have a closer resemblance to Plastics than to oil.
  • moreover they have no nutritional value.

So WHY is it that these types of oils are allowed in our foods…?

The point to focus on however, is this -> what are you going to do about it?

Steer clear of these:

  • Fried foods
  • “shortening” in ingredients list
  • Anything “Hydrogenated” in ingredients list
  • FDA guidelines allow manufacturers to list “zero grams trans fat” on nutrition labels even if there are concentrations up to 0.5 grams per serving.
  • Trans fat containing foods: baked goods, snack foods, margarine.


Stay tuned for PART 8!
