Is anyone familiar with the process of hydrogenated foods and their effects on the body? I know hydrogenated fats negatively affect health, but what about other foods? A number of sugar alcohols are produced via hydrogenation of sugars w/ Raney nickel used as a catalyst.Hydrogenated fats were thought to be safe for a number of years before they were moved to the bad list. I can't find any info on the potential long-term effects of hydrogenated sugars. If anyone with some knowledge in this area can shed some light, please do.
i don't know but i like to learn bout this subject too, although i stay away from products which aren't pure anyways
