Hydrogenated Soybean Oil USP

Hydrogenated Soybean Oil is pale yellow oil extracted from soybeans. Hydrogenated Soybean Oil is the product obtained by refining, bleaching, hydrogenation, and deodorization of oil obtained from seeds of the soya plant Glycine max Merr. The product consists mainly of triglycerides of palmitic and stearic acids. It is one of the most widely consumed cooking oils. Hydrogenation may be used to reduce the unsaturation in linolenic acid.


It is hydrogenated by catalytic reaction to form a solid state. These flakes can be used in cosmetic applications. Also used in variety of processed food.
