In fact, partial hydrogenation of vegetable oil is a process in which unsaturated fatty acids of vegetable oil are changed into saturated or semi saturated state. Trans fatty acids will be produced in this process, but total hydrogenation will not produce trans fatty acids. At present, this kind of full hydrogenation process is very mature.
The World Health Organization and European and American countries have made suggestions and regulations on the safe upper limit of daily intake (2G) and the proportion of trans fatty acids in food (1%).
In the past, this product was only used as a coffee whitener instead of milk. Later, some people took it directly to drink, and others added it to cakes, cream and other foods as food raw materials. Because its shape and the product after flushing are very similar to milk powder and milk powder after flushing, it is also called “creamer” by Chinese people.
In industry, it is called “fat powder”.
The purpose of the preparation of vegetable powder for general coffee use is to meet the above requirements. Casein is used to embed fat globules rather than provide nutrition. Generally, only 2-4% casein is needed for 30% fat. In general, the end-of-life plant fat industry in the product catalog is more about function and application, and there will never be any statement that nutrition or milk powder can be replaced.
As the vast majority of vegetable fat powder is used in the category of leisure drinks and non-staple food, it is not suitable to test it with nutrition standard, just as it is to test candy and cola with nutrition standard.
