(hī'drō-jen-ā'shŭn, hī-droj'ĕ-nā-shŭn),
Addition of hydrogen to a compound, especially to an unsaturated fat or fatty acid; thus, soft fats or oils are solidified or "hardened."

Most biohydrogenation (>80%) occurs in relation to the fine food particles and this is attributed to extracellular enzymes of bacteria either associated with the feed or free in suspension [35].

As yet uncultured bacteria phylogenetically classified as Prevotella, Lachnospiraceae incertae sedis and unclassified Bacteroidales, Clostridiales, and Ruminococcaceae may play a predominant role in ruminal biohydrogenation.
This range is due to differences in the biohydrogenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids by microorganisms in the rumen, leading to higher levels of saturated and monounsaturated fatty acids (French et al.
2006) or to modify the lipolysis and biohydrogenation of polyunsaturated fatty acids (Vasta et al.
The reduction in DM intake recorded in the present study as corn oil was added may be due to metabolic control mechanisms related to the effect of some fatty acids on biohydrogenation in the rumen, as suggested by Doreau and Chilliard (1997), which may interfere with rumen function.
Increase in CI8:1 c9 with high level of inclusions of OCS could be associated with the high level of TP and ADL contents of TMR, supporting the hypothesizes of Chiofalo et al [1] that there is a lack of biohydrogenation from oleic to stearic when feeding by-product rich in ADL and TR Alternatively this FA, rich in OCS, can be directly incorporated in the mammary gland.
