Reference: whole-cut

Reference information:
Fatty acids are made from naturally occurring fats and oils and comprise a mixture of different chain length hydrocarbons which are dependent on the natural distribution of the hydrocarbons in the oil feedstock. These fatty acids are referred to as whole-cut fatty acids. The resulting whole cut fatty acid is made by "splitting" the oil into fatty acid and glycerine in a hydrolyzer or kettle. The whole cut fatty acid will have the same distribution of carbon chain length molecules as the oil.
