Palm Oil Facts

Palm oil is produced from the fruit of the oil palm Elaeis Guinnesis, found in Africa, South East Asia and Latin America. Palm oil is extracted and refined through pressing and crushing and not by the use of chemical solvents.

Crude Palm oil can be further refined into Palm olein (Liquid) and Palm stearine (Solid)

Palm olein is used for frying foodstuffs as it is stable at high temperatures.
Palm oil is used domestically, in restaurants, fast food outlets and in the commercial preparation of fried products such as potatoes.

Palm oil, with its moderate linoelic acid content and high level of natural antioxidants, is suitable for direct use in most frying applications, and frying is a major use of palm oil worldwide. Oils containing significant levels of linoelic acid are not recommended for frying, unless they have been hydrogenated to reduce the content of these labile components. Palm oil resists oxidation and rancidity, which means products made using palm oil have extended shelf lives.

Palm oil contains a balance of polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated fatty acids. In addition, palm oil contains essential substances such as linoleic acid and tocopherols and tocotrienols, which act as natural anti-oxidants .

Unlike other vegetable fats, palm oil is free from cholesterol. As palm oil is solid at room temperature, hydrogenation is not required, a technique which hardens liquid oil but resulting in adding trans fatty acids in the process. Studies prove that palm oil does not ordinarily raise blood cholesterol levels, and is helpful in lowering harmful LDL-cholesterol
