LOUIS (January 18, 2018) – The soybean industry successfully passed the
final regulatory measure to secure global approval for trade of high
oleic soybeans upon receiving the European Commission’s authorization on
Dec. 22, 2017 to use the stacked traits found in Pioneer brand Plenish®
high oleic soybeans for food and feed.1 This monumental
decision, combined with final global approval Monsanto’s Vistive® Gold
high oleic soybeans received upon China’s authorization of importation
in June 2017,2 increases the reliability of supply of high oleic soy for the food industry.
full global regulatory approval is key for the entire soybean value
chain, as it will boost Plenish and Vistive Gold soybean acreage,” said
Richard Galloway, QUALISOY oils expert. “This will allow the industry to
reach its goal of planting 18 million high oleic soybean acres,
resulting in 9 billion pounds of high oleic soybean oil. In the coming
decade, high oleic soybeans will become the fourth-largest grain and
oilseed crop in the U.S.”3 In addition to gaining the green light for global trade to ensure a
reliable supply of high oleic soybeans, high oleic soybean oils contain 0
grams of trans fat per serving, as well as lower saturated fat
(compared to conventional soybean oil).4 Food manufacturers
benefit from the improved shelf life and neutral flavor of high oleic
soybean oil, while the foodservice industry appreciates enhanced
functionality, extended fry life and reduced build-up of polymers on
equipment.5 “Achieving high oleic global regulatory approval enables U.S. soybean
farmers to provide the food industry with a product they want,” said
Lewis Bainbridge, United Soybean Board chair and soybean farmer from
South Dakota. “Farmers are excited to grow high oleic soybeans and
having full global approval means we can continue to increase high oleic
soybean acreage.” As the June 2018 Food & Drug Administration (FDA) deadline to remove partially hydrogenated oils (PHOs) from food6
approaches, oils such as Plenish and Vistive Gold, which contain 0
grams of trans fat per serving, are an excellent alternative offering
functionality without compromising flavor.
is an independent, third-party collaboration that promotes the
development of and helps build the market for the latest enhanced
soybean oils, including high oleic soybean oil. High oleic soybean oil
delivers extended shelf life, increased stability and a neutral flavor
profile, making it ideal for frying, sautéing, baked goods and snack
foods. In food applications that require high stability oils, high oleic
soybean oil performs and functions similarly to partially hydrogenated
oil and oils high in saturated fat and outperforms most other high
stability oils – without contributing trans fat.
