Palm olein oil is known for its stability but has limitation in the health and nutrition industry as it is high in saturated fats. Flaxseed oil is known for various health benefits and only high Omega 3 Plant-Based source. Oxidation of flaxseed oil limits its utilization on commercial Basis. Present work is carried out to make a unique blend of flaxseed and palm olein oil which has a high smoke point, stability and have balance ratio of omega 3, 6 and 9 as a single oil medium. Method Flaxseed oil was blended with Palm olein oil in the stabilized ratio of 3:4. Smoke point and shelf-life (oxidation stability) of pure oils fatty acid profile of raw oil and blended oil were evaluated.
Results: oxidation stability Index of pure oils were 72 for palm oil and only 6 for flaxseed oil and 38.68 for Flaxseed and palm oil blend at 100 Â°C which is improved by 32.68 % , Smoke point of pure palm olein ( 320 ) and flaxseed oil ( 135 ) as compared to Blended flax and palm oil (248) , Induction period after 1 month storage 42(PO ), 3.35 (FO ) 28.17 ( FOB).
Conclusion: Blending flaxseed oil with Palm olein oil in a proper ratio is a novel alternative to increase the commercial productivity of both the oils in terms of quality and oxidative stability which make this blend nutritionally rich and provide the recommended amount of omega 3, omega 6 and omega 9.
