  • Publication number: 20220104510
    Abstract: There is provided a novel method for suppressing coloration of an oil and fat composition when a food ingredient is fried using the oil and fat composition. This method includes a step for adding a preparation oil to an edible oil and fat, and is such that: the preparation oil is a substance that has been subjected, in a step for refining a crude raw oil obtained from olives serving as an oilseed raw material, to (1) an optionally implemented neutralization step, (2) an optionally implemented bleaching step, and (3) an optionally implemented deodorization step in the stated order, without a degumming step having been implemented, where at least one of the (2) bleaching step and the (3) deodorization step is implemented; and an absorbance difference of the preparation oil is 0.05 or more, the absorbance difference being obtained by subtracting the absorbance at a wavelength of 750 nm from the absorbance at a wavelength of 660 nm, with isooctane used as a control.
