Fats and oils, Sunflower
People went to sunflower due to palm
issues. Considering the availability, how effective the growing of sunflower is
it might be wise to switch back to palm in several cases as it can be sourced
in a sustainable way. Coconut, Shea butter can also be options, but also here
an availability is not always obvious. Canola or rapeseed oil can be an
effective solution but do give sometimes taste issues.
In some more rich products (e.g. higher in
fat) one could think of using products that mimic fat properties and with that
cut back on the level of fat by using special starches, fibres and/ or
emulsifiers. It can give an extra benefit in the sense that a calorie reduction
is obtained as well.
