Saturated hydrocarbons are harmful for health.Still what is the need for hydrogenation
Hydrogenation is important for food industry. Saturated vegetable fats are solid at room temperature, and have a higher melting point than unsaturated oils.

Unsaturated vegetable oils can be ‘hardened’ by reacting them with hydrogen, a reaction called hydrogenation.
