Trans fat free plastic composition for bakery products

Notes

 “Partially hydrogenated shortenings include trans fats. Recently, studies have established that there is a negative health impact from the use of shortenings that contain trans fats generated during the hydrogenation process of liquid fats. Plant oils having a high saturated fat content, such as palm oil, have also been implicated in adverse health effects and, therefore, are less desirable than vegetable oils having a lower amount of saturated fat, for preparing the emulsifier composition of this invention.

This invention combines a glyceride emulsifier with a non-hydrogenated vegetable oil to form a plastic/paste replacement composition for partially hydrogenated shortenings. Without the addition of an emulsifier, non-hydrogenated vegetable oil would not be useful as a plastic/paste shortening substitute. "Plastic" and "plastic/paste" as used herein mean that the formulation is pliable, gives way when force is applied, is malleable yet self-sustaining at room temperature, and there is no tendency for the vegetable oil to leak out of the composition or form an oily phase, as would occur if the constituents were simply mixed one with the other. The plastic emulsifier composition made in accordance with the improved process of this invention has physical and functional characteristics that are fully equivalent to current partially hydrogenated shortenings, but without an attendant trans fat fraction. Furthermore, the composition has a lower saturated fat content than a no trans fat product made from, for example, palm oil.”
