Health & Nutrition - Fall, 2017 - Vol 25, No 4 Edible Oil Milestones
In This Issue:
- The FDA has allowed the use of a qualified health claim on certain products made with soybean oil. The claim states, “Supportive, but not conclusive scientific evidence, suggests that eating about 1½ tablespoons (20.5 grams) daily of soybean oil, which contains unsaturated fat, may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease. High oleic soybean oil, an important option for replacement of solid fat and liquid oils in multiple food applications, maintains or improves lipid and lipoprotein profiles in humans compared to alternative functional fats. As consumers shift toward more plant-based diets for environmental concerns, it is clear that soyfoods, because of the amounts of high-quality protein they provide, can play an important role in these diets.
