Crude degummed soybean oil
CRUDE DEGUMMED SOYBEAN OIL is a product obtained when soybean are processed in the production of protein products and after lecithin extraction. It is important because of the high content of linoleic acid, an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid, as well as the other valuable minor ingredients such as phytosterols, tocopherols (antioxidants) and fat-soluble vitamins.
CRUDE DEGUMMED SOYBEAN OIL is predominantly used in the form of oils and vegetable fats in human nutrition, following subsequent refining and hydrogenation. Vegetable oils and fats play a significant role for the human organism from the nutritional and physiological aspects. They provide the human body with essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. They represent an important source of energy and serve as one of the major components of cell walls. They stimulate the appetite and the secretion of digestive enzymes by giving dishes a pleasant flavour, odour and texture and increase one’s feeling of satiety.
CRUDE DEGUMMED SOYBEAN OIL is used less frequently in the production of paints and varnishes, fatty acids, resins and plastics.
