Technical Abstract: Sesamol has drawn a considerable interest as an alternative to synthetic antioxidants due to its excellent radical scavenging ability at room temperature, low cost and additional health-promoting benefits. However, when it was evaluated for its antioxidant activity in soybean oil at frying temperature, it did not show very impressive results. Additives were tested to investigate their effects on the antioxidant activity of sesamol. Twenty two additives were examined and some of them showed remarkable improvements in antioxidant activity of sesamol during heating of soybean oil at 180 °C. It is believed that this innovative method can be applied to many other natural and synthetic antioxidants. After a patent application is filed in November, the detailed information will be stated in the updated abstract and the presentation.
