Stratas has made great strides in offering many options to help with your label, to “Keep it Clean”

  • Need a cleaner labeled margarine?  Our new “cleaner” Accolade products include the following options:
    • Zero artificial preservatives
    • Zero allergens
    • Palm free
    • Soy free
    • Non GMO Project Verified
    • Mono and diglyceride free
    • Natural rather than synthetic colors
    • Salt free
    • Low fat spreads with margarine functionality, for cost savings and for lower saturates
  • Need palm free to avoid sustainability risks, or to have a more stable, cleaner flavor?  Stratas’ soybean oil shortenings are fully functional.


Stratas has several options for reducing saturated fat content in your end products, including:

  • Superb Select 1020:  A soy based shortening that contains 28% saturates, which is about 40% lower than standard palm.  Superb Select 1020 is also free from hydrogenated fat, is whiter than palm products, and generally has a cleaner flavor than palm.
  •  Superb “IE” soy shortenings:  This line of shortenings has over 12 years of proven success as an excellent soy shortening for all applications.  Most of this line contains around 36-38% saturates, vs closer to 48% for palm.
  • Palm/soy and palm/canola blended shortenings:  These also can be used to lower saturated fats from 100% palm shortenings.
  • Conventional and clean label margarine: Margarines contain about 20% water and thus exhibit saturated fat reduction benefits, and even greater reductions when using palm/soy or similar blends.
  • Stay tuned for new generations of Stratas reduced saturated fat products!

Tech Sheet Available:

The shift to non PHO shortenings can be challenging, since palm options often contain clumps and are brittle, and can “oil out” in the summer, while soy options often are too soft…Stratas’ unique technology expands the reach of non-PHO options into more challenging baking, icing, and donut applications, allowing you to choose what is Good, Better, or Best for your situation…

Good:  Stratas offers conventional palm and soy options, at competitive prices

  • Extensive palm offerings include RSPO sustainable palm, a palm/soft oil blended shortenings and margarines to dial in the right texture
  • Soy shortenings or margarines offer palm free, clean flavor and stable options

Better:  Frustrated with instability or poor performance? 

  • Stratas’ Flex (for flexible) crystallization technology delivers a much creamier, smoother, and more stable crystal structure than conventional non PHO options!
  • Flex also expands the working temperature range by 15-25 degrees vs conventional palm (even without changing melt points)
  • Stratas’ new palm based puffed pastry and roll in shortenings and margarines offer superior rise and performance compared to conventional options.

Best:  Stratas’ APEX soy shortening line offers Full PHO functionality but without the PHO, by leveraging our Golden Flex crystallization technology with the extended stability of high oleic soybean oil!
