|1. (WO2018038103) PROCESS FOR PRODUCING SUGAR FATTY ACID ESTER USING ANION EXCHANGER AS CATALYST|
|Title:||PROCESS FOR PRODUCING SUGAR FATTY ACID ESTER USING ANION EXCHANGER AS CATALYST|
The purpose of the present invention is to provide a process for producing a sugar fatty acid ester such as sucrose fatty acid ester (FASuc) and provide a composition containing the sugar fatty acid ester, the process solving the various problems of conventional processes for producing such esters. The process has advantages including no generation of a by-product soap and ease of separation between the catalyst and the reaction product, and enables the ester to be efficiently synthesized in a flow system by a simple operation under mild conditions. The present invention relates to: a process for producing a sugar fatty acid ester by transesterification between a fatty acid ester and a sugar using an anion exchanger as a catalyst; and a composition containing the sugar fatty acid ester.
