I just searched it, modified palm oil is fractionated, not hydrogenated. But you really have to be careful at whole foods. They have soem great stuff, but they have a lot of junk and there is also the cultural aspect: "I shop at whole foods".
When I lived in FL, I would go downtown for the farmers market and stop by this bar for 2 beers on saturdays. One day this lady, probably around 60 with a face lift and wearing expensive clothes was sitting next to and she said "I come down here every sat and have a glass of chardonney and then go to whole foods", I replied, I go there occasionally but it is too pricey to buy everything there. She replied " I only shop there". I kept my cool, but you can guess what I wanted to say!
