Eek, 4/8! I only actually knew a couple of these.. Oreos and Jif. My dad made us stop buying processed peanut butter ages ago because of hydrogenated oil, so I've been eating the natural stuff for a while now.

1/8, I totally bombed it! Everything I thought that didn't have hydrogenated oil did, and vice versa. I suck! I'll do some major label reading!

7/8! I followed my rule: if it's a famous brand, they don't use it anymore, it's bad publicity. It works most of the time.

Ugh. I'm pregnant and I just bought those exact same Hot Pockets. At least I only ate one of them. Serves me right for not reading labels!

LOL. 4/8. Whether or not these foods have hydrogenated oils or not, most of them are still bad for you!I'd be more worried about the high fructose corn syrup content...waay too much fake sugar in the sweet things. Lay's have too much salt (get the Baked ones!); a lot of these products *still* have plenty of fats (and not the good kind) - I mean, we're talking about cookie dough, peanut butter, Chex Mix, and potato chips here... @_@

I bombed - but that's b/c I don't eat any of this stuff anyway! W/ or w/o hydrog. oils, it's still processed junk.

I think this article made a mistake - Hydrogenated oils are not trans fats, which is what this quiz is about. Partially hydrogenated oils are trans fats and man-made. Look up the difference online and tell me if I'm wrong here!

Hydrogenated oil and partially hydrogenated oils are not the same. I think this article made that mistake - you really meant to ask about trans fats - which is partially hydrogenated oil. Read about the difference at http://ezinearticles.com/?The-Difference-Between-Hydrogenated-vs.-Partially-Hydrogenated-Fats&id=421546.
