Additive of the Week - Hydrogenated Vegetable Oil

A significant ingredient in the Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches at Sea Cliff School

The Center for Science in the Public Interest recommends that people avoid partially and fully hydrogenated vegetable oils.

The peanut butter in the PB&J sandwich offered daily at our school includes "hydrogenated vegetable oil and/or partially hydrogenated palm oil".

Partially hydrogenated oils are a source of trans fat which promotes heart disease. If the oil is fully hydrogenated, it does not have trans fat but also lacks any polyunsaturated fats. Palm oil itself is high in saturated fats (which, btw, are not good for you) and the farming of it is bad for the environment, too. And, yes, for those of you wondering, the peanut butter is a gift of the USDA and our government.

  1. Very interesting idea! I think that could prove a very worthwhile approach in establishing long term relationships. I think that you would need to prioritise quite heavily towards the people who either link to you all the time or who have large, powerful sites. But these are the perfect people to build a relationship with as they have already shown that they like you by placing the link.
