Best Answer

Trans fats made from plant sources of fat. Plant fats tend to comprise mostly of unsaturated fatty acids which is why oils are not solid. They are chemically altered to have more hydrogen which results in them being more solid like animal fats such as butter which are higher in saturated fatty acids. Chemically trans fats are unsaturated fats but structurally they are like saturated fats.
