What is HVO?

Image result for hydrogenated vegetable oil

Firstly, let us tell you what HVO is. HVO stands for hydrogenated Vegetable Oil, which are highly processed fats that have been added to a number of food stuffs including some hot chocolate drinks.

HVO’s have found their way into a whole range of food products because the substance is cheaper to produce than its natural alternatives and keeps the food fresher for longer. You will see it listed on the ingredients of margarines, biscuits, cakes, frozen meals, fried foods, sweets, crisps and many dairy products.

HVO’s are artificially produced fats that have been proven to be more unhealthy than any other type of fat. Hydrogenated Vegetable fat isn’t technically a saturated fat at all but in fact vegetable oil that has been blasted with hydrogen so that it acts just like a natural saturated fat. The hydrogen makes the fat harder, which is why it can stick and clog up your arteries.

HVO’s are bad for your health because the human body finds it extremely hard to process this type of fat, HVO’s increase risks of strokes and heart attacks and many countries have banned their use.
