What is the vegetable fat? How bad is it?

Vegetable fat powder, also called milk essence, is mainly made from hydrogenated vegetable oil. It is the main component of instant coffee. It is mainly used to replace dairy products. It can greatly improve the taste of instant coffee and reduce the production cost.

“Trans fatty acids” will be produced during the production of “hydrogenated vegetable oil”, the main raw material of vegetable fat powder, which is harmful to human body. It can increase LDL and decrease HDL in human blood, induce vascular sclerosis and increase the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular accident.

The Harvard Medical School found that the intake of trans fatty acids greatly increased the risk of heart disease. Moreover, it would interfere with the metabolism of essential fatty acids, affect the growth and development of children and the health of nervous system, increase the risk of type 2 diabetes, and lead to infertility and breast cancer in women.

In fact, “hydrogenated vegetable oil” does not exist in nature, that is to say, the human body is unable to absorb and digest this oil under natural conditions. After eating, it will damage the liver, destroy the cell membrane of human body, cause cell defects, and affect the future replication and regeneration of cells. The harm to human body is obvious.

However, with the improvement of production technology, more and more fat powder manufacturers have developed zero trans fatty acid vegetable powder products, which have been widely praised in the market and recognized by everyone. It is a very promising catering industry. We make daily choices, distinguish the ingredients of the products, and control the corresponding intake, which will not cause too much impact on the health.
