Plenish™ High Oleic Soybean Oil Debuts at the Culinary InstitutePlenish™ high oleic soybean oil recently made its debut at the world renowned Culinary Institute of America (CIA) in St. Helena, Calif. (U.S.). Through a joint sponsorship with Bunge Oils, a leading manufacturer of edible oils, and Qualisoy™, a collaborative effort among the soybean industry to market the development and availability of healthier soybeans and soy oil, Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil was the exclusive oil of the event.
More than 700 leading chefs, corporate menu decision-makers, food service management executives, suppliers, food critics and journalists cooked with the oil during kitchen demonstration workshops. In addition, Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil was featured during an exclusive luncheon to kick-off the conference and at receptions throughout the event.
Plenish™ High Oleic Soybeans.“Participating in the CIA event provided exposure for Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil with key decision makers and the chefs that will determine the next big trends in American cuisine,” said Russ Sanders, director of DuPont Ag & Nutrition Enhanced Oils Venture. “The interaction with CIA chefs is invaluable as we work to market this enhanced, high stability oil to the food industry.”
Plenish™ high oleic soybeans from Pioneer contain the highest oleic content (more than 75%) of any soybean product under commercial development. This significantly increases the stability of the oil and provides greater flexibility in food applications. Consumers also benefit from Plenish™ high oleic soybean oil which contains 0 g trans fat and 20% less saturated fat than commodity soybean oil, making it a more attractive food ingredient.
The CIA is widely recognized as the world's premier culinary college, with an industry-wide reputation for excellence and more than 40,000 alumni.
