When a plant oil is hydrogenated, it is chemically converted from a liquid to a semi-solid or solid form using a process that involves hydrogen gas under high pressure. Hydrogenation allows an oily liquid to remain in a solid state at room temperature. Hydrogenated olive oil is a rich source of antioxidants, and, as described, hydrogenating the oil changes it from its natural liquid state into a solid state.
