Multi-step dry fractionation gives rise to soft fractions (Oleins, Superoleins and Topoleins) that are used as salad, cooking and frying oils, and to harder fractions (Stearins and Palm Mid Fractions) finding applications in frying fats, margarines, sho and speciality fats. Palm Oil is principallly made of trisaturated TAG’s (SSS), disaturated TAG’s (SUS), monosaturated TAG’s (SUU) and triunsaturated TAG’s (UUU). Limitations due to intersolubility (closely linked to polymorphism) make the separation difficult, as co-crystals are formed at each fractionation step. Only restricted enrichments in TAG’s are possible. GOAL: Highlight the intersolubility phenomenon involved in the dry fractionation process of Palm Oil. Several liquid and solid fractions are selected : « Liquid Route ». Physico-chemical characteristics are examined in order to establish relationships between melting/plymorphic properties and chemical composition. Palm Oils: • Large range of FAME and IV (GLC) (depending on origin). • No relationship between IV and CP. • Large range of TAG’s composition (HPLC). • DSC : LMP and HMP.
