The next generation of high oleic soybean oils will give the food industry a cost-effective and healthier alternative to partially hydrogenated vegetable oils (HVOs) with flavor and stability current alternatives cannot deliver, according to biotech giant Monsanto.

With a fresh clean taste, oils from Monsanto's new Vistive Gold soybeans also boast extended fry life and stability at high temperatures – along with a sharp reduction in saturated fat – claimed director of food applications Richard Wilkes, who caught up with FoodNavigator-USA at the IFT show in Las Vegas.

Just another Poison put out by Monsanto!

Just one more GMO put out by Monsanto!! I refuse to eat canola oil now do you think I would eat this "new" one? No way!! Monsanto needs to get rid of the GMOs in the agricultural business!! Monsanto has one goal - take over all food in the world!!! GREEDY CORPORATIONS that could care less about people and the health of humanity!!
