158 pages


The Chemistry and Technology of Edible Oils and Fats contains the proceedings of a conference arranged by Unilever Limited and held at Port Sunlight in England on March 10-12, 1959. The papers explore the chemistry and technology of edible oils and fats, with emphasis on analytical procedures, the methods of industrial processing, and the pattern of dietary fat consumption seen from the viewpoint of the economist.
This book is comprised of seven chapters and opens with a discussion on the physical and chemical properties of the constituents of edible oils and fats, with particular reference to the fatty acids, the glycerides, and those closely related compounds which are fatty in a general sense. The following chapters focus on the pattern of fatty food consumption in the United Kingdom; the methods used for the analysis of oils and fats; processing of oils and fats for edible purposes; the use of the isotopic dilution technique in the determination of linoleic acid; and the application of gas/liquid chromatography to the analysis of atheromatous plaques. The final chapter deals with the use of spectroscopic and X-ray techniques in the analysis of oils and fats.
This monograph will be a useful resource for chemists and food technologists.
