FST-E05 Technology Of Fats and Oils 2 0 2 3

What is fat - Importance - chemical composition of fats. Triglycerides - their
structure and composition - mono and diglycerides - free fatty acids -
phosphatides- sterols, fatty acid alcohols - tocopherols.
Factors affecting physical characteristics of fats and oils - chemical reactions of
fats and fatty acids, stability of oils and fats. Important characteristics of oils
from coconut, cotton seeds, palm, sunflower, sesame, safflower, rice bran, rape
seed, mustard, linseed, soybean, castor and lard.
Processing techniques - Degumming, refining, bleaching, deodorizing,
fractionation, hydrogenation, inter-esterification and esterification. Alternative
methods for extraction and processing of oils.
Common products preparation - Salad and cooking oils, shortenings (baking
and frying fats), hard butters, margarine and spreads, dressings for food
(Mayonnaise and Salad dressings, pourable - type dressings, reduced calorie
dressing), toppings, coffee whiteners, confectionaries coatings, low - fat spreads
for traditional breakfast foods etc.
Value added products from vegetable oil refining industry like lecithin, wax,
Vitamin-E, oryzanol. Value added products from non-traditional oils and fat.
By-products from bran oil and oil refining industry, utilization of lingo
cellulosic waste from oil industry, bakery fats with zero trans fatty acids.
