fully hydrogenated vegetable oil

  1. fully hydrogenated vegetable oil


    my peanut butter comes with this type of oil it is bad to consume this type of oil on a regular basis? thanks in advanced


  2. If you can get natural, go for it. If that's not possible, look at how much trans-fats is in it. If it's in there, I would try and limit/avoid it.

  3. Fully Hydrogenated Vegetable does not contain trans fat, but partially-hydrogenated oil does. This is important because manufacturers are allowed to list trans fat as 0 if it has less than .5 grams per serving. Depending on how much you use, this can be very significant.

    pretty much the best stuff comes from raw unroasted peanuts, no additives thats the way I prefer it. you can mix in some walnuts, cashews or almonds for a little zing tastewise, or add a little honey and/or salt for flavoring. Its pretty nice solo. If you really want to play with it, you can even add protein powder to it after you've ground it, chocolate goes well.

    You live up here in Canada though right Brian? WE finally closed that legal loophole, and now any all all TFAs are reported on the label. It's why I see 0.1 and 0.2g of TFAs all the time. The USA might still be behind on that one though.

  11. ok thanks for the help guys.......so if its below .5 grams trans fat they dont tell you?

    Depending on your labelling regulations. In Canada, any and all trans-fats are labeled but the US may be different as Brian mentioned; possibly if it's <0.5 then can list it as 0.

  14. im in el salvador......i just came back i lived 2 years in florida.....but it sucks we dont have natty peanut butter here

    Yeah, Canada is honest, the US would rather cater to manufacturers than consumers

    consumers can choose to buy peanut butter that has no hydrogenated oils in it at all

  17. but i have a dought......the nutrition label says:

    total fat: 16 g
    saturated fat: 3g
    trans fat : 0 g
    polyunsaturated fat : 5g
    monounsaturated fat: 8g

    if you add all that gives you 16g total fat
    it is still possible that this peanut butter has a little bit of trans fat and they dont listed?

    most countries don't require decimals so it can be rounding.

    total fat: 16.3 g
    saturated fat: 2.8g
    trans fat : .4 g
    polyunsaturated fat : 4.9g
    monounsaturated fat: 8.2g

    would end up the same as your label...

    I'd trade more relaxed PH/Hormone laws for our Trans-Fats labeling anyday

  21. so can i use walnut oil to make my own natural peanut butter?

  22. sorry to come in on this late, but from my nutrition courses in college the rule was that if Partially Hydrogenated Oils is listed at all in the ingredients then it has to have trans fats in it. If it doesn't list this, then you can be sure that it doesn't contain trans fats.

    On a side note, I just bought some natural Cashew Butter made with Raw Brazilian Cashews and Safflower Oil and it was awesome! Sorry, I get excited about the little things in life.

  23. but what about

    FULLY hydrogenated or PARTIALLY or just HYDROGENATED VEGETABLE OIL does it has trans fat on it?

    i say that because my peanut butter says on the front of the bottle no "no trans fat as always per serving"

    that natural cashew butter sounds tasty

    you could add walnut oil yes. And fully hydrogenated has no trans fat, but if it just says "hydrogenated" you dont know if its fully or partly.

  25. I don't recall ever seeing fully or completely hydrogenated oils as an ingredient. I would just assume that this is their way of saying partially, but don't quote me on that.

  26. I've seen fully hydrogenated oils listed. If it just says hydrogenated, though, that seems to imply "fully" from a grammatical sense, but I wouldn't bet on it.

  27. fully hydrogenated fats are the equivalent of eating shortening. Vegetables don't make saturated fats so they change the oil and saturate it. Pretty bad for the body. If the peanut butter at the store separates it's oils out then it ok.
