Fat Replacement & Oil Reduction

The number of people suffering from diabetes and obesity continues to rise – having already reached pandemic proportions in many developed countries. As a result, there is an increased government regulatory and market focus on the proportion and amount of high fat and high calorie foods in the diet. In the US, for example, the Affordable Care Act mandates the listing of calories and fat contents on menu items in fast food chain restaurants and similar retail food establishments. There are also an increasing number of health-conscious consumers that are looking for convenient and healthier foods with reduced calorie content.

To address these trends, Dow provides food manufacturers with easy-to-use and cost-effective solutions. That replace fat with healthier oils such as Omega-9, olive oil or sunflower oil, and reduce oil uptake in fried food without compromising on product quality.
