NEW! High-Oleic Soybean Oil
What Americans Say about Soy and Nutrition
Versatile, Healthy, Affordable
No matter the dish or product you’re creating, soy adds variety, healthfulness and consumer appeal – at a competitive price.
Few foods are as versatile as soy. Leading chefs and foodservice operators select soy for its broad appeal and adaptability.
The Easy, Affordable Oil
Great-tasting food is easy with soybean oil. Soybean oil’s light, golden appearance and neutral flavor make it a flexible ingredient for many types of cooking.
• Allow the full flavors of other ingredients to stand out; soybean oil contains virtually no flavor or aroma
• Flawlessly replace higher saturated oil in sautés and stir-fries • Quickly fry foods – soybean oil’s smoking point is 440°F
• Soybean oil has a strong emulsifying ability
• Soybean oil is extremely stable, available with active oxygen method (AOM) levels ranging from 15 to over 300 hours
Trans Fat Solutions with Functional Foodservice Benefits
The highly anticipated high-oleic soybean is finally here.
High-oleic/reduced saturate soybean oil is available for testing. It delivers 0g trans fats, 20%* less saturated fat (vs. commodity oil), excellent flavor stability and extended shelf life with 90+ hours** frying time.
Upcoming varieties include high-oleic/low saturate (with even lower saturated fat) and increased omega-3 for heart health.
