Hydrogenation is a process that fat is put through to make it more stable in things like margarines, or a lot of processed baked goods and foods. This type of fat, however, is worse for you than saturated fat and should be avoided. I believe the writer of the recipe just doesn't want you to make unhealthy goodies.
