Excessive consumption of specialty fats and oil may decrease the level of HDLs (high-density lipoproteins) and increase the level of LDLs (low-density lipoproteins) in the blood, which may cause a risk of thrombosis. Moreover, a high level of polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA) is present in vegetable oils that may cause cells inflammation and lead to an imbalance digestive system. PUFA in vegetable oil automatically oxidize during food processing, resulting in the production of inflammatory peroxides and hydroperoxides.

Thus, growing awareness of health effects due to excessive consumption of fats and oil has expected to hinder the growth of the market.
