People take food as their heaven and oil as their first food. Edible oil is related to everyone's life and health, and should not be underestimated. It is necessary to analyze and understand edible oils, guide the rational use of edible oils, and serve healthy life.
1. Potential health hazards due to uneven nutritional intake
Although the dietary energy supply is adequate and the physical development and nutritional status of the residents in China are generally improved, there are still unreasonable phenomena in the dietary structure of the residents. The Chinese people are facing the double challenges of nutritional deficiency and overnutrition. Consumption of legumes and dairy products is still low, fat intake is excessive, malnutrition still exists in some areas, overweight and obesity are prominent, and chronic diseases related to dietary nutrition are increasingly threatening the health of Chinese residents.
2. Excessive consumption of edible oil is the main cause of nutritional imbalance.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends that the daily intake of grease is 25 grams per person. In fact, the average daily consumption of grease for urban residents in China has reached 50 grams per person, twice the amount recommended by WHO. Excessive consumption of edible oil has become the main cause of nutritional imbalance among urban residents in China.
Edible oil, as a source of 70% fatty acid in human body, is one of the most important basic nutrients for human body. However, excessive consumption will hinder the body from absorbing other nutrients, which has potential adverse effects on health. Therefore, the intake of edible oil should be controlled.
3. High-end edible oil consumption trend
With the concept of reasonable diet and scientific input of nutrition becoming more and more popular, consumers are increasingly demanding edible oil products. High-end edible oil with health, safety and rich nutrition has become the choice of most of them.
The consumption concept of "mixing and eating healthier" of edible oil is becoming more and more popular. Originally the family kitchen where peanut oil "unifies the whole world", now we can often see olive oil, corn oil, flaxseed oil and other high-end oil products.
High-end edible oils are more beneficial to human health. They have higher content of unsaturated fatty acids and richer vitamins and trace elements than common peanut oil, rape oil, soybean oil and other herbal plants. Fatty acid composition is more reasonable. The rich content of unsaturated fatty acids and phytosterols can reduce the concentration of cholesterol in the blood and prevent atherosclerosis. Therefore, they can inhibit and prevent cardiovascular and cerebrovascular diseases such as coronary heart disease and hypertension.
4. The market demand for high-end edible oil is huge
At present, China's edible oil market has a consumption scale of about 26 million tons, but more than half of the population in China consumes bulk oil and secondary oil. Soybean oil, rapeseed oil and palm oil still firmly occupy the main position of China's edible oil. The identity of new high-end oil is still "the second bottle of family oil".
However, with the rising price of traditional edible oil raw materials, the profit margin is becoming smaller and smaller. On the contrary, the high-end edible oil industry is growing at the rate of nearly 80% annually. However, it is still unable to meet the huge demand of China's high-end edible oil market.
