Awareness of the negative health impacts of trans fats once cost soybean oil its place in popular food items. Today, that’s changing thanks to high oleic soy. High oleic technology is an advancement in the soybean market that gives soybean oil greater potential for high temperature and prolonged uses like baking, frying and sautéing in both commercial and home kitchens. Soybean oil with high oleic acid content can be used at high temperatures without hydrogenation or producing trans fats. SOYLEIC® is the branding associated with the non-GMO high oleic trait technology developed in Missouri through research made possible by soybean farmers, the soybeans containing that technology, and the products made from those soybeans, including soy oil and meal. The beans’ oil contains as much as 80-85 percent oleic acid, significantly exceeding the industry’s 70 percent standard. Click here for a high oleic soybean oil fact sheet.
