A Kemin Success Story | The effect of frying oil quality on the shelf life of tortilla chips

Frying is one of the oldest and simplest methods of food cooking. The popularity of frying relates to the speed at which the food can be cooked as well as the attractive properties of the fried food.

To protect the quality of the finished food product it is essential that industrial frying oils are able to withstand the harsh conditions that go along with the high frying temperatures. Furthermore, the quality of the oil also plays a key role in maintaining the organoleptic properties of the fried food product during storage.

Healthier… less stable?

Nowadays, vegetable oils such as refined rapeseed oil and sunflower oil are widely used. There is an increased preference of consumers for specific vegetable oils which are healthier due to the higher content of unsaturated lipids. Unfortunately, such unsaturated fats and oils are less stable compared with saturated fats such as animal fats or palm oil. This affects flavour, texture and shelf life of the fried product.

“The choice of the deep-frying medium is always a compromise between the technological as well as the nutritional and health requirements”.

Kemin can extend the shelf life of fried tortilla chips with inclusion of FORTIUM RG20 Liquid natural flavourings.
