This June, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration determined that partially hydrogenated oils (PHO's) are not generally recognized as safe (GRAS) in human food.

Consider Batory your partner in the face of this change. With broad expertise, we will recommend appropriate PHO replacements from our vast catalogue of PHO-free fat bases, including shortenings, oils, margarines, dressings and more. As important, we offer technical resources— both in house and via trusted vendors—to ensure that your R&D initiatives succeed.
