Quality parameters of sunflower oil and palm olein during multiple frying
The refined sunflower and palm oils are used in the food industry for the production of fried potatoes. Literary data have shown that palm oil had less tendency to degradation than sunflower oil
Studies on Fatty Acids Composition, Antioxidants and Antibacterial Activity of some Egyptian vegetable Oils
This study was designed to determine fatty acids composition in some Egyptian vegetable oils namely virgin olive, sunflower, corn, and sesame seed oils. Obtained results using gas chromatography (GC)
Characteristics and fatty acid composition of commonly consumed cooking oil marketed locally in Riyadh city
Vegetable oils and fats have wide application in foods and play important sensory and functional roles in food products. The objective of this study was to determine the physicochemical properties
Production and Characterization of Biodiesel from Cotton Oil as an Alternative Energy in Substitution of Soybean Oil
Biodiesel production has currently used virgin raw materials that have a direct use for mainly food uses, as in the case of vegetable oils, mainly soybean, and may in some cases affect food safety.
Effects of refining process on sunflower oil minor components: a review
Sunflower oil is well known because of its diversity of fatty acids profiles which allow different uses (food: dressing salads, margarines; nonfood: agrofuel, lubricants). Besides, crude oil contains
Physicochemical characteristics of high free fatty acid crude palm oil
The physicochemical properties of different grades of Malaysian crude palm oil (high free fatty acid crude palm oil (HFFA-CPO) and low free fatty acid crude palm oil (LFFA-CPO)) were analyzed in this
Composition, properties and potential food applications of natural emulsions and cream materials based on oil bodies
Oil bodies are micron- or submicron-sized organelles found mainly in parts of plants such as seeds, nuts or some fruits and their main role is to function as energy stores. Their structure is made up


Oil content and composition of the seed in the world collection of sesame introductions
A significant negative correlation was found between oleic and linoleic acid content and there was no correlation between oil content and iodine value of the oil.
Frying stability of soybean and canola oils with modified fatty acid compositions
Pilot plant-processed samples of soybean and canola (lowerucic acid rapeseed) oil with fatty acid compositions modified by mutation breeding and/or hydrogenation were evaluated for frying stability.
The oil palm
This chapter discusses the origin and development of the oil palm idustry, its classification and morphology, and the future for oil palm clonal propagation and other aspects of oil palm biotechnology.
Survey of soybean oil and meal qualities produced by different processes
Soybean oil and meal produced by extruding-expelling (E-E) are believed to have unique characteristics compared with products produced by solvent extraction (SE). A survey was conducted to compare
Comparison of Yield and Composition of Oil Extracted from Corn Fiber and Corn Bran
ABSTRACT We recently reported that corn fiber oil contains high levels of three potential cholesterol-lowering phytosterol components: ferulate-phytosterol esters (FPE) (3–6 wt%), free phytosterols
Handbook of Soy Oil Processing and Utilization
Fats and oils play an important role in the human diet. They improve the palatability of foods, are a concentrated source of calories, and supply certain components vital to the human diet such as
Natural refining of extruded-expelled soybean oils having various fatty acid compositions
Simple, low-capital-investment oil refining techniques, which may also meet the needs of natural or organic food industries, were explored to process extruded-expelled (E-E) soybean oils with various
Physical and chemical properties of trans-free fats produced by chemical interesterification of vegetable oil blends
Fat blends, formulated by mixing a highly saturated fat (palm stearin or fully hydrogenated soybean oil) with a native vegetable oil (soybean oil) in different ratios from 10:90 to 75:25 (wt%), were
Chemical Composition of Soybean Oil Extracted from Hypocotyle-Enriched Soybean Raw Material and Its Cholesterol Lowering Effects in Rats
Soybean oil (termed Soybean-germ oil to distinguish it from normal soybean oil) was extracted from hypocotyle-enriched (37%) soybean raw material and its chemical composition was analyzed. The total
Effect of refining of crude rice bran oil on the retention of oryzanol in the refined oil
The effect of different processing steps of refining on retention or the availability of oryzanol in refined oil and the oryzanol composition of Indian paddy cultivars and commercial products of the
