So i was watching the 700 club recently (one of my fave programmes) and i came across a report on hydrogenated fat. It was both shocking and alarming. I had no idea how many food products contain this synthetic ingredient. I have found myself reading labels and ingredients before buying. Today i went to the supermarket with my toddler and she wanted biscuit, Now she is a good girl and eats healthy food..anything from okra to yam etc.. so i have no issues with giving her the occasional treat especially as she does not have a sweet tooth but still i would much rather stick to a piece of fruit if the only biscuits available contain this dodgy ingredient. From what i understand it is synthetic so your body does not recognise it and therefore does not know what to do with it..yikes that is not good at all.
