Fatty Acids
Polyunsaturated and Coconut

Univar Solutions is your one-stop shop for all fatty acids, including coconut and polyunsaturated fatty acids.  

Fatty acids are a very useful chemistry due to their high-performance properties derived from renewable raw materials. Univar Solutions offers a full range of fatty acids including coconut and polyunsaturated fatty acids (PUFA).

Coconut fatty acids are vegetable derived, from coconut oil or palm oil. Coconut oil is the highest natural source of lauric acid. Our portfolio has versions which are whole, stripped, distilled, and hydrogenated, and some of our products can be certified kosher or halal.

Polyunsaturated fatty acids are derived from a variety of natural oils and fats and have more than one double bond in their carbon chain. Some of the most common grades are soya, linoleic, and sunflower fatty acid. We can also produce custom blends, tailoring a product to a customer’s needs.
