Definition(s):

  • (n) a chemical process that adds hydrogen atoms to an unsaturated oil

Usage(s):

  1. It is not the same as hydrogenation and does not affect the trans fat content of oils.
  2. If I'm man enough to watch men tackle one another, I'm man enough to work a little partial hydrogenation through my arteries.
