When organic palm oil is cooled and filtered, the oil separates into organic palm olein (liquid) and organic palm stearin (solid) fractions.
Organic palm stearin is solid at room temperature with a high melting point. Is is used in pie crusts, coatings and confections, and to stabilize nut butters, margarines and spreads to prevent ingredient separation. You will also find palm stearin used in soaps and cosmetics.
All of Ciranda's Palmfruit™ palm oil products are produced in South America and carry the Identity Preserved (IP) certification from the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). RSPO-IP is the highest supply chain certification level offered by RSPO and ensures our palm oil is kept separate from other palm oil along the supply chain for true traceability.
