Key Plenish Documents:
High oleic soybean oil provides a soy-based trans fat alternative for food companies and for foodservice operators. Plenish® high oleic soybeans from Pioneer contain the highest oleic content (more than 75 percent) of any soybean product under commercial development. This improvement in the oil profile brings a dramatic increase to the stability of the oil, resulting in longer shelf life in packaged foods, and greater fry life for foodservice operators. From a health and nutrition standpoint, Plenish® high oleic soybean oil has 0g trans fat per serving and 20 percent less saturated fat than commodity soybean oil, making it a more attractive ingredient for consumer food products.

We are very excited about the potential for high oleic soybeans and will be offering the following locations for delivery:

High Erucic Acid Rapeseed (HEAR) 

High erucic acid rapeseed (HEAR) is a specialty rapeseed selected for its high erucic content.  It has over 50% erucic acid and is grown as a key ingredient for plastics, personal care products and pharmaceuticals.  The seed, the crop and the oil are visually similar to canola, therefore every step of the supply chain demands robust and effective identity preservation processes.  Technology Crops International pioneered HEAR production in the U.S.  For growers, the rotation to HEAR is easy because it is grown exactly like canola.  And growing HEAR now could actually protect wheat markets in the future as it diminishes rye contamination—a serious threat to future wheat exports.  HEAR is currently non-genetically modified.
