Problem: Saturated fats have long straight tails of fatty acids, while unsaturated fats from vegetables have kinks in their tails due to double bonds. These kinks prevent the fats from packing together as tightly. Hydrogenated vegetable oils have hydrogens added back to the double bonds and thus behave like ____. a. Unsaturated fatsb. Carbohydratesc. Proteind. Saturated fats
