Adding a proactive functional benefit to a product can boost sales.

In 2018, the FDA authorized the use of a qualified health claim citing oils with at least 70% high oleic acid may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.

Food manufacturers with existing products that meet FDA requirements can consider adding the health claim to labels (with proper disclaimers). Brands seeking to source heart-healthy ingredients for emerging products can test high oleic soybean oil in formulations.

High oleic soybean oil is a heart-healthy formulation choice for vegetable oil spreads, butter blends, and margarines that meets, and may exceed, the minimum of 70% high oleic acid, plus:

  • 0 grams trans fat
  • Lower saturated fat
  • 3X the beneficial monounsaturated fatty acids (MUFAs) compared to conventional soybean oil

Great Taste & Improved Functionality
with Heart Healthy Benefits

More than 80% of consumers say taste is the top purchase driver. Using flavor-neutral high oleic soybean oil in your spreads and margarines provides the great taste and easy-to-spread convenience consumers demand.

  • Neutral flavor profile makes it ideal for butter blends and spreads; and a better choice for baking or preparing delicate flavored foods
  • High smoke temperature for improved cooking performance when sautéing and pan frying
  • Stays semi-solid at room temperature
  • Spreadable even when chilled

Made from soybeans grown exclusively by American farmers using sustainable practices.
