NUTRIFAT: Elaboration of new food systems emulsions with improved nutritional properties

Project: Research

Description

A lot of shortenings are formulated with partially hydrogenated oils. During the hydrogenation, some trans fatty acids (TFA) can be formed. Or, TFA are well known to raise the risk of coronary heart diseases. The alternative of the use of "bad fats" is incorporating new fractions of vegetables oils obtained by fractionnement.
