    Abstract: The present invention is concerned with a fat composition comprising a mixture of one or more polyol fatty acid polyesters, which mixture exhibits Newtonian rheology at solid fat content of at least 15%, and with a fatty acid distribution which complies with the condition:PY<1.1wherePY=2.94*y+2.1*x+16.6*y.sup.2 +2.7*x.sup.2 +14.6*xy-0.26wherein x=[P]-[M] and y=[S]-[P] and PY means predicted yield and which in the same time complies with each of the following conditions:[B]<0.35either [P]<0.40 or [P]<0.65and [L]<0.15,wherein [P] is the molar fraction of palmitic acid residues, [M] is the molar fraction of myristic acid residues and [S] is the molar fraction of stearic acid and longer saturated fatting acid residues, [B] is the molar fraction of lauric and shorter fatty acid residues, [L] is the molar fraction of saturated fatty acid residues having a carbon chain length of at least 20.
