Vegetable fat powder, also known as milk essence, is a new product with hydrogenated vegetable oil and casein as main raw materials. The product plays a special role in food production and processing. It can replace milk powder or reduce milk consumption in food processing, so it can reduce the production cost while maintaining the stability of product quality.
Generally, a cup of milk tea contains about 5g of fat powder. The trans fatty acid content in the fat powder is the key factor affecting human health. Recent studies have shown that hydrogenation of vegetable oil is actually the process of transforming unsaturated fatty acid of vegetable oil into saturated or semi saturated state. Trans fatty acid will be produced in this process, which can increase the low-density lipoprotein in human blood, reduce the high-density lipoprotein, induce vascular sclerosis, and increase the risk of heart disease and cerebrovascular accident.
Recently, when revising the composition of food pyramid in the United States, it has been clearly pointed out that attention should be paid to trans fatty acids, and manufacturers are required to indicate the content of trans fatty acids in products. Therefore, for people, if the intake of fat end products is controlled at the corresponding level, there is no excessive impact on the health of people, so we do not need to worry too much.
