Vegetable fat powder, also known as milk essence, is a new product with refined vegetable oil, hydrogenated vegetable oil and casein as the main raw materials. The product plays a special role in food production and processing, and is also a kind of modern food.
According to different needs of users, low-fat, medium fat and high-fat products can be produced according to their standards in the production process. Main ingredients: hydrogenated vegetable oil, emulsifier, glucose syrup, sodium caseinate, sodium aluminosilicate.
Recent studies have shown that partial 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. However, total hydrogenation does not produce trans fatty acids, which is a very mature process.
When revising the composition of the food pyramid, many countries have clearly put forward the issue of paying attention to trans fatty acids, requiring manufacturers to indicate the content of trans fatty acids in their products.
Now it is generally understood that the safe upper limit of daily intake (2G) and the proportion of trans fatty acids in foods (1%) are relatively reasonable. Therefore, as long as we control the daily intake and eat a healthy diet, there will be no major health problems.
