Palm Oil, Virgin Red Sustainable
Our virgin red palm oil is pure and unrefined. It is sourced from a certified organic supplier that is also a member of the Fair Trade and Roundtable of Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO). This red palm oil comes from sustainably grown palm trees on small scale family farms located in West Africa. It has been traditionally used for more than 5,000 years in African countries.
Its virgin state means that it maintains the nutrients of carotenes (precursors to Vitamin A) and the antioxidant tocotrienols (Vitamin E). In its natural state, palm oil is red in color due to a high concentration of carotenes and tocols. Because of this, it has exceptional resistance to rancidity. Virgin Palm Oil is further known for its excellent stability at high temperatures.
