For decades, public health advocates have been concerned with the use of partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) in processed and manufactured foods.

Vegetables oils are typically liquid at room temperature but this chemical manipulation of the oil makes it solid at room temperature which lengthens the shelf life of a product.
