Brief description of the substance

Oils, vegetable, deodorizer distillates is a complex combination obtained by distillation of various vegetable oils in a deodorizer, followed by condensation of the vapor. The composition of this substance varies depending on the vegetable oil feedstock type and the process efficiency of the deodorizer. It is composed of 0-80% glycerides and 15-95% fatty acids (including their esters), 0-40% unsaponifiable matter, e.g. tocopherols, sterols, sterol esters and hydrocarbons, e.g. squalene. The glycerides and fatty acids are characterised by alkyl chain lengths between C8 and C18, including C18-unsatd. and the exact distribution also depends on the vegetable oil feedstock.

Specification for sameness
