Application of interesterified plant oils (IPOs) prepared from palm, cottonseed and olive oil (IPaO, ICO and IOO, respectively) have been studied in Turkish-type salamis. Beef fat (10%) was replaced by one of the IPOs for 20, 60 or 100%. Incorporation of IPO was well reflected in fatty acid composition and saturated fatty acids/unsaturated fatty acids (SFA/UFA) ratios of the lipid fraction of all batches. Significant differences in appearance, color, texture, flavour or total score were not found among the control and Turkish-type salamis with different types and levels of IPO. We conclude that IPOs may be successfully applied as beef fat substitutes in Turkish-type salami.
