It has neutral flavour and is said to enhance the natural taste of food products in which they are used. Thus, they are used extensively for frying and baking purposes. Margarines, whipped toppings, icings, salads, potato chips & french fries, cereals, baked goods, stir-fried and oriental dishes, mayonnaise and spicy foods are some trending food products that will drive the cottonseed oil market.
