Vistive® Gold soybeans now have the potential to deliver benefits as a food ingredient and as an industrial use. For food companies, Vistive Gold soybeans deliver a trans fat free and reduced saturated fat soybean oil, while also providing increased stability for food manufacturers’ frying and baking applications. As an industrial use, Vistive Gold soybean oil has the potential to be a feedstock for an entirely new class of bio-based synthetic oils that match or exceed the performance characteristics of the highest quality petroleum-based oils currently used in the automotive and industrial lubricant sectors.
Building off the success of Vistive® low linolenic soybeans, Vistive Gold soybeans take farmers and the food industry one step further:
- For Farmers: Along with SDA Omega-3 soybeans, Vistive Gold soybeans represent one of the first biotech products that enable farmers to help bring nutrition benefits to consumers – while growing a high-yielding soybean.
- For the Food Industry: A solution to cost-effectively eliminate trans fats and significantly lower saturated fat content in foods without sacrificing flavor quality.
With dietary recommendations calling for consumers to reduce their saturated fat intake and minimize trans fat intake, many consumers have abandoned fried or baked foods altogether. Because of its composition, Vistive Gold soybean oil does not need to be hydrogenated, the process that creates trans fats. This ability to bypass hydrogenation means oil from Vistive Gold soybeans eliminates or reduces trans fats and saturated fat content of fried and baked foods, allowing consumers to enjoy more of the foods they love.
Frying tests done with chicken and French fries have shown no change in taste or texture while delivering all the benefits of an improved cooking oil, including reduced saturated fat and zero trans fat.
