And several powdered formulas--Isomil, Similac, Gerber, amd Carnation--have virtually no linolenic acid
Raising soybeans with improved compositional traits such as low linolenic acid
represents the future for our growers.
The linoleic acid (C18:2) and linolenic acid
(C18:3) contents were 57.
The relationships of total plasma PUFAs, n-3 FA, linolenic acid
, n-6 FA, linoleic acid, and arachidonic acid with change in creatinine clearance from baseline to follow-up was examined using multivariate linear regression models adjusted for covariates, including education, cigarette smoking (pack-years), MMSE score, energy intake, alcohol intake, LDL cholesterol, HDL cholesterol, cancer, cardiovascular disease, and hypertension (Table 2).
Soybeans that contain low linolenic acid
content result in more stable oil that does not require hydrogenation.
In fact, our bodies also need gamma linolenic acid
(GLA), and omega-6 fat that isn't found in either flax or fish oils.
Soybeans typically produce oil with seven percent linolenic acid
The researchers learned that mayolenes are derived from a common fatty substance, linolenic acid
Its oil has half the linolenic acid
found in commercial varieties.
The weight percent of linoleic acid (18:2n--6), linolenic acid
(18:3n--3), arachidonic acid (20:4n--6), docosahexaenoic acid (22:6n--3), and ten other acids, were determined using stearic acid (18:0) as a reference standard.
2003; Chantaprasarn and Wanapat, 2008) and linolenic acid
Stable frying oils need to have low levels of linolenic acid
, more oleic acid and less linoleic acid, which is similar to what is found in hydrogenated oil.
They also contain calcium, potassium, zinc, selenium, folate and niacin, together with linolenic acid
, which helps prevent hardening of the arteries.
Long-term, QUALISOY plans to develop a pipeline of enhanced compositional traits that improve the health attributes of soybean oil and soybean meal, such as lower saturated fat, reduced linolenic acid
levels and higher metabolizable energy levels in soy meal.
Normally, these chemicals are manufactured from linolenic acid
- a fatty acid found in nuts, seeds and vegetable oils - but in some people the conversion process fails.
