CROPLAN® soybean varieties that include Vistive™ technology produce low-linolenic oil, which allows food processors to reduce the need for hydrogenation. When used by food companies, low-linolenic oil from Vistive™ soybeans can lower or eliminate unhealthy trans fats from oils in foods.
Beginning in 2006, the Food and Drug Administration required food products to carry trans fat content on labels. Vistive™ technology offers an opportunity for food manufacturers to show reduced trans fat presence on food labels and improve consumer nutrition. Producers benefit from the demand for foods low in trans fats because it creates a ready market for soybeans with Vistive™ technology.
CROPLAN® soybean varieties with Vistive™ technology offer strong yield potential and top agronomic performance. Vistive™ soybeans also include Roundup Ready® technology for excellent weed control and crop safety with the use of Roundup® agricultural herbicides.
Increased demand for low-linolenic oils from food manufacturers is already generating excitement among soybean processors who want to supply low-linolenic oil to the food industry. Producers who choose to partner with participating soybean processors will see how they can receive price premiums by growing Vistive™ soybeans.
U.S. producers have the added advantage of receiving preferred access to Vistive™ soybean technology, giving them a global competitive advantage in the world marketplace.
