Abstract

See full text

The process for pairing a fat continuous spread having from about 30 about 80% fat and having a trans fatty acid level of less than about 10% is described. An interesterified hardstock as described herein is combined with liquid oil to form a fat phase. The fat phase and an aqueous phase are combined to form an emulsion which is crystallized to form substantially beta prime crystals in the C-unit. The beta prime containing crystal containing emulsion is the emulsion exiting the initial A-unit at a throughput of the emulsion through the entire production line of x kilograms per hour, a residence time of the emulsion in the crystallizing (C-unit) of y minutes and the recirculation flow rate of the emulsion recirculated into the cooled partially crystallized emulsion of 0.2 x to 10 x to form the fat continuous product.
