This is great news, maybe we can get back to using healthy lard again instead. And it will force manufacturers to get the added transfats out of lard sold today too. Lard has had a bad rap for too long.

Hydrogenated oils are natural vegetable oils that have been chemically altered. It is no wonder an artificial substance like hydrogenated oils are bad for the human body. Keep it natural as nature intended!

There are no trans fats in "pure" lard.... The reason they would hydrogenate commercial lard, is to increase shelf life and to make it more solid at room temp.... I would guess Lard, coconut oil and beef tallow will be making a comeback... Natural fats are healthier than artificial fats... Just remember, consume saturated fats in moderation!!!
