Interesterified Oil

What is Interesterified Oil?

Interesterified Oils also known as interesterified fat is a type of oil where the fatty acids have been moved from one triglyceride molecule to another. [1]

Interesterification does not alter the fatty acids. This is generally done to modify the melting point, slow rancidification and create an oil more suitable for deep frying or making margarine with good taste and low content of saturated fatty acids. [1]
