Organic Unrefined Cold Pressed Pure, Raw Red Palm Oil, not to be confused with processed palm kernel oils (which is mass produced and whose cultivation often results in the deforestation of the valuable rainforest).
High in oleic acid, vitamin A and E, unrefined red palm, just like coconut oil, is gaining a reputation as a versatile, healthy oil.
Note: this Palm oil is not from the huge monocultures in South East Asia or Africa but from organic plantations and sustainable farms in Colombia and Ecuador. It is gently gained from the fully ripened flesh of the oil palm. This preserves valuable ingredients and the typical flavour particularly well. Red palm oil is heat stable and is great in baked goods and African/Asian dishes.
This product is cold pressed at below 40 degrees, non-bleached, non-deodorised, and non-hydrogenated. Here is a starter link for those wishing to know more: Tropical Plant Fats: Palm Oil
Please note: Red palm oil naturally forms crystals from the naturally occurring sugars which can be seen in the jar. However, this crystallisation disappears on heating of the oil.
Red palm oil is ideal for roasting or simply spreading and with a unique smokey flavour makes a great occasional change from our favourite coconut oil.
