    "Becel - example of when interesterification allows one to change physical properties without forming trans fatty acids"
  2. Image Upload
    • "Production of monoglycerides from fat by reacting with excess glycerol"
    • TG interesterified with excess glycerol produces predominantly monoglycerides
  3. Image Upload
    • "Van der Waals forces"
    • Crystals are held together by Van der Waals forces (electrons moving in sympathy with one another) which form a 3D network, which holds the system together
  4. Image Upload
    • "Soft margarines"
    • When a fat can be deformed readily, it is said to be in its 'plastic range', which is a function of the triglyceride faty acid composition and distribution
    • Hence 'soft margarines' are fats specially formulated to have wide plastic range - to be plastic at refrigerator temperatures but still not melt at room temperature
  5. Image Upload
    • "Alpha-crystals"
    • Have a somewhat random packing arrangement and are relatively unstable
    • If holding temperature rises above the temperature of stability for the alpha-crystal form, it will sponaneously start to change to another crystalline form
  6. Image Upload
    • "Beta prime crystals"
    • These crystals tend to be small and uniform, a desirable structure and are relatively stable
    • If they re-melt and cool very slowly and form large beta crystals
  7. Image Upload
    • "Beta crystals"
    • When beta prime crystals re-melt and cool very quickly, very dense large, beta crystals are produced
    • Undesirable because they induce graininess (detected organoleptically) and reduce functionality
  8. Image Upload
    • "Dilatometer"
    • Measurement of the solid fat content is commonly determined by dilatometry or NMR
    • Based on the measurement of specific volume (the inverse of density) per unit temperature
  9. Image Upload
    • "Specific volume plotted as a function of temperature to produce a graph"
    • A sigmoidal curve will be produced which has 3 general regions:
    • A. Solid fat undergoing thermal expansion of the solid
    • B. Representing expansion of solid and progressive dilation due to a change in state to a liquid
    • C. Representing the expansion of the liquid only
  10. Image Upload
    • "Assuming that the solid line is parallel to the liquid line one can calculate the ratio of solid to liquid fat at a specific temperature"
    • Calculation based on temperature selected:
    • % solids at 25°C = (X25/Y)*100
  11. Image Upload
    • "Examples of dilatometric curves for fats"
    • utter and lard dilatometric profiles
  12. Image Upload
    • "NMR machine"
    • Probing of the fat using radio waves and magnetic field - the radio waves causing the hydrogen in liquid fat molecules to resonate
    • Measurement by NMR is termed solid fat content (SFC)
    • The amount of resonance generated is proportional to the liquid portion of the fat
  13. Image Upload
    • "NMR absorption scan"
    • Produced by NMR machine to determine solid fat content (SFC)
  14. Image Upload
    • "Shortening"
    • Shortenings have the capability to reduce the elasicity of a dough to make pastry more tender/flakey
    • Fats with higher levels of unsaturated fatty acids hve greater shortening power - often prepared by hydrogenation of vegetable oils
  15. Image Upload
    "Shortening plasticity can also be varied by changing varying the amount of nitrogen incorporated into the fat, which also whitens it"
  16. Image UploadImage Upload
    • "Margarines are fat and oil blends which have extensively replaced butter, 2nd photo shows new ones with plant sterols"
    • Margarine = water (about 20%) in oil emulsion with some milk solids
  17. Image UploadImage Upload
    • "Enrobing fats"
    • Typified by cocoa butter - used extensively to enrobe confectionary products or ice cream
    • Has narrow melting point range and contains about 80% di-saturated triglycerides
  18. Image Upload
    • "Shortbread cookies"
    • Incoporation of fats into baked products tends to shorten texture - reduces the interaction of the wheat proteins to produce a desirable crumbly texture required for cakes and cookies
  19. Image Upload
    • "Fats and oils used to manufacture salad dressings used with raw vegetables to provide lubrication and carry flavors"
    • Used to manufacture mono/di-glyceride emulsifiers, which are required in the formulation of salad dressings - stabilize the emulsion formed by their polar/non-polar moieties
  20. Image Upload
    • "Pam"
    • Source of phospholipid by-products also used extensively as emulsifiers, as food/pan release agents (like Pam) and anti-spattering agents
  21. Image Upload
    • "Monoglyceride structure"
    • Have the characteristic of reducing the interfacial tension between oil and wter by bridging the two phases by having both hydrophilic and hydrophobic moieties within its molecular structure
  22. Image Upload
    • "Phospholipid"
    • Have the characteristic of reducing the interfacial tension between oil and wter by bridging the two phases by having both hydrophilic and hydrophobic moieties within its molecular structure
  23. Image Upload
    • "Emulsion"
    • Becoming viscoue, opaque, and the fatty sensation associated with oil is masked
  24. Image UploadImage Upload
    • "There are specialty products - i.e. medium chain triglycerides - for clinical, health food/athletic markets"
    • Sold extensively and expensively to athletes
  25. Image Upload
    • "Visible fat trends"
    • Butter and lard are declining
    • Major increase in salad/cooking oils from vegetble sources
    • Margarine/shortening holding steady
  26. Image Upload
    • "Invisible fat trends"
    • Major sources of invisible fats - meat, fish, poultry
    • Followed by dairy products - milk, cream, cheese, but excluding butter
    • Eggs are a relatively minor source as legumes, grains and nuts
    • Fruits and vegetables very minor source of fat
  27. Image Upload
    • "Total fat consumed = Visible + Invisible"
    • Fat consumption has been rising
    • This trend has leveled off somewhat since 1985
  28. Image Upload
    • "Fat replacers - Olestra"
    • All the properties of an oil, but not digesible
