Ingredient companies have created innovative fats and oils that provide a range of functions in food products. They are also developing fats and oils that have a healthier balance of polyunsaturated and monounsaturated fats as more consumers become aware of the benefits of so-called healthier fats. They have made advances, such as developing fats and oils that improve the flakiness, tenderness, and taste of laminated pastries and enhancing the meltdown, snap, and texture of molded chocolate. They have also found ways to increase the shelf life and quality of frying oils.
