When organic virgin palm oil is extracted from fresh fruit bunches, it yields a strong-flavored, dark red oil. The refining of organic virgin palm oil results in a lighter yellow, neutral-flavored organic palm oil with a balanced composition of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. It is semi-solid at room temperature and can be further separated into organic palm olein and organic palm stearin through fractionation - a series of precise cooling and filtering stages.
As one of the world's highest yielding and most functional oil crops, you'll find palm oil all around you. Use it in ice cream, baked or fried snacks, nutritional bars, frosting, supplements, lotion and shampoo.
