CRUDE DEGUMMED SOYBEAN OIL is a product obtained when soybeans are processed for the production of protein products and after lecithin extraction.
This oil is very important because of the high content of linoleic acid, an essential polyunsaturated fatty acid, as well as the other valuable ingredients such as phytosterols, tocopherols (antioxidants) and fat-soluble vitamins that it contains.
Crude degummed soybean oil is mostly used in the form of oils and vegetable fats in human nutrition, after precise refining and hydrogenation. Vegetable oils and fats play a significant role for the human organism from the nutritional and physiological point of view. They provide the human body with essential fatty acids and fat-soluble vitamins. They represent an important source of energy and serve as one of the major components of cell walls. Vegetable Oils stimulate the appetite and the secretion of digestive enzymes by giving dishes a pleasant flavor, odor, texture and increase the feeling of satiety.
Crude Degummed Soybean Oil is used less frequently in the production of paints and varnishes, fatty acids, resins and plastics.
