Vegetable fat powder, also known as milk essence, is a new product mainly made of hydrogenated vegetable oil (a kind of product with great harm to human body) and casein. Recent studies have shown that hydrogenation of vegetable oil is actually the process of transforming unsaturated fatty acid of vegetable oil into saturated or semi saturated state. Trans fatty acid will be produced in this process, which can increase the low-density lipoprotein in human blood, reduce the high-density lipoprotein, induce vascular sclerosis, and increase the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular accident.
“Vegetable butter”, which is the production of hydrogenated oil, produces a large amount of trans fatty acids. There is a clear correlation between the intake of trans fatty acids and the incidence rate of cardiovascular diseases. The study found that the intake of about 0.5 grams a day increased by about 0.1 grams of its intake, the cardiovascular incidence rate is basically doubled.
The Harvard Medical School found that: trans fatty acid intake is significantly related to the risk of coronary heart disease, even if the daily intake of trans fat is less than 5g, the risk of heart disease will also increase by 25%. This research result has aroused widespread concern in western countries, and scholars from various countries have carried out research on it, and found that trans fatty acid not only increases heart rate, but also increases heart rate In addition to the risk of vascular disease, it also interferes with the metabolism of essential fatty acids, affects the growth and development of children and the health of nervous system, increases the risk of type 2 diabetes and leads to infertility in women.
Since hydrogenated oil was introduced into human diet as an industrial substitute 100 years ago, it has not only improved the taste of food, but also posed a huge threat to human health. Some scientists call hydrogenated oil another DDT compared with DDT, which was widely used in the last century.
However, since the 1970s, countries around the world have banned the use of DDT. When can we get rid of the shadow of hydrogenated oil? For the health of themselves and their families, rational people try to buy food containing vegetable fat powder, shortening, vegetable cream and hydrogenated cream. The same is true of the fat powder contained in the protein powder. We only need to control the intake, and don’t worry too much.
