Food and Feed
QuolioTM with high solubility and no impact on odor or organoleptic properties makes the product a perfect choice to play with different food formulation for a variety of purposes.
High oxidative stability
Unsaturated fats and oils have a natural tendency to oxidize or resinify at high temperatures. QuolioTM presents a high stability against oxidation. After 30 min at 230ºC some aldehydes are clearly noticeable in the case of sunflower seed oil, but not in the case of QuolioTM.
Neutral in taste and smell
QuolioTM is processed under a high standard of food safety and perfectly refined. QuolioTM is not promoting any off-flavor or off-odor even under demanding conditions.
QuolioTM exhibits very low water solubility thus it can make the surface of the mold, pan, machine or equipment water-repelling. QuolioTM also protects surfaces against corrosion due to the hydrophobic effect as well as the isolation from the external air.
Film former properties
QuolioTM presents a perfect balance in surface tension, spreadability and viscosity; consequently, it forms an interrupted film between the surfaces and the doughs. Additionally, MCT can form a good adhering film on steep walls, creating a moisture barrier and preventing water loss.
High fatty substance solubilizer
QuolioTM is perfectly refined and presents a very few number of particles, being rated as below 0.05 NTU, preventing clogging of the nozzles during application. QuolioTM presents good solubilizing properties being slightly more polar than standard vegetable oils, so it can act as a solvent for oil dispersible substances.
