During the par frying of pre-baked French fries, an exhange of lipids takes place due to which the original fatty acid composition may change drastically. Via a collective research project a model was developped which allows to predict the fatty acid composition of the finished product on basis of the frying conditions and the properties of the pre-baked product and frying oil.
