TRISYL® Edible Oils and Fats
TRISYL® silicas are synthetic amorphous micronized silica hydrogels used for refining and processing of edible oils and fats to help improve quality, stability, and reduce neutral oil losses.
In refining edible oils and fats, TRISYL® silicas remove naturally contained and process-induced contaminants like soaps, phospholipids, and trace metals to ensure food safety and help improve quality and stability.
Benefits of TRISYL® silicas:
- Recommended for use in all refining of animal, vegetable, soft seed oils, and fats
- Offers selective removal of phospholipids
- Removes trace metals and soaps associated with the oil refining process
- Used as an adsorbent agent for removing colloidal nickel and nickel soaps generated during hydrogenation.
- Used as an adsorbent agent for removing soaps generated during interesterification processes.
Along the ability to remove or adsorb polar impurities and contaminants, TRISYL® silicas also can reduce costs by simplifying the refining process and helping to minimize the environmental footprint of your edible oil refining process. Positive impacts on sustainability are achieved by reducing the water needed after primary centrifuges and minimizing the need for bleaching earth.
Helping to Deliver Healthier Solutions
Grace has partnered with a leading global agribusiness and food company to supply TRISYL® 150IE silica, for use in a novel enzymatic interesterification technology to process edible oils. This new technology is a healthier and more efficient alternative to partial hydrogenation. Based on immobilizing enzymes, it produces no trans fats, requires fewer processing steps, occurs naturally at a lower, energy-saving temperature, and improves the stability of vegetable oil.
Grace welcomes partnerships with key companies and engineering houses to develop tailor-made solutions for the edible oil industry.
