  • Is Olive oil and Lard hydrogenated fat?

    EVOO and lard that you just make at home, was just wondering if they would they be considered hydrogenated fats?

    No. Not sure this is the best reference but... What Is Hydrogenated Fat?

      But wouldn't EVOO be part hydrogenated? according to this it is http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Does_olive...rogenated_oils

        about 14%

        ..oops, that says 14% saturated fat. the same as hydrogenated, as far as I know, although I think 'hydrogenated' refers to artificially hydrogenated fats.

          I don't see how. From wikipedia:
          Look at the chart here under "not hydrogenated" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extra_virgin_olive_oil

            Did you ad hydrogen to your oil or lard? If not, it's not hydrogenated

              No, but wondering if Extra Virgin Olive Oil has had hydrogen added to it?

                No. That's why it's still a liquid at room temp. It would have a thicker consistency, like Crisco, if it was hydrogenated.

                  So than does coconut oil have hydrogen since its solid?

                    All fat molecules contain hydrogen.

                    When we add it in a lab, these oils are hydrogenated or trans-fats

                    When it comes that way, the number of bonds missing a hydrogen determines how we name it. Poly-unsaturated means many bonds lack a hydrogen (we can hydrogenate these), mono-unsaturated means 1 bond lacks a hydrogen (olive oil is mostly oleic acid, a monounsaturated fat), and saturated means no bonds lack a hydrogen. These are naturally solid at room temperature.

                    Coconut oil is made up of primarily saturated fats. So we couldn't hydrogenate these if we wanted to. It's only artifically hydrogenated oils that are dangerous. Naturally saturated fats are the safest and most stable fats of all.
