hi, i do know that olive oil is healthy since it contains unsaturated fatty
acids. However, isn't hydrogenation used when oils are converted to margarine?
since hydrogenation saturates the fatty acids, doesn't this make the oils
unhealthy? this is the case with coconut based margarine. however, does it also
apply to olive oil based ones? thanks
