Natural Red Palm Oil is produced from the fruit of the oil palm, Elaeis guineensis. This palm tree can be found in the wet, rainy areas of Africa, as well as the tropical rain forests of Asia. Our Natural Red Palm Oil comes from Malaysia. More palm oil is produced and exported from Malaysia than any other country. Natural Red Palm Oil contains about 50% naturally occurring saturated fats and 50% unsaturated fats. The fats in Natural Red Palm Oil are not synthetically hydrogenated or altered in any way. The main fatty acid found in Natural Red Palm is oleic acid, which is the main type of fat in olive oil. Natural Red Palm Oil is a vegetable oil and therefore does not contain any cholesterol, which is only found in animal or dairy products.
