Abstract
The directed rearrangement reaction of an acidolysed cottonseed oil (acidolysed with palmitic acid) in solvent has been studied to find out the mode of distribution of the acyl radicals in the triglyceride moiety and also the changes in glyceride pattern and configuration of the oil after such reaction using pancreatic lipase hydrolysis. The glyceride compositions as calculated by the application of 1,3‐random 2‐random distribution hypothesis, of M. H. Coleman and W. C. Fulton of acidolysed cottonseed oil before and after directed interesterification reaction point out remarkable changes in the pattern of glycerides namely a notable increase of trisaturated glycerides with the diminution in the content of triunsaturated glycerides. Solid fat indices as determined by measuring the dilatation of fat, content of trisaturated glycerides and moderate slip points of the order of 37°C denote the suitability of using the modified fat thus produced as a good margarine base fat as the said fat has been shown to have a fairly long and extended plastic range as evidenced by low slopes in dilatometric charts compared to other conventional plastic fats.
