About Palm Oil Policy
Palm oil is derived from the flesh of the fruit of the oil palm species Elaeis guineensis. In its virgin form, the oil is bright orange-red due to the high content of carotene. Palm oil is Nature’s gift to Malaysia, and Malaysia’s to the world.
Palm oil is semi-solid at room temperature; a characteristic brought about by its approximately 50 percent saturation level. Palm oil (and its products) has good resistance to oxidation and heat at prolonged elevated temperatures; hence, making palm oil an ideal ingredient in frying oil blends. Manufacturers and end-users around the world incorporate high percentages of palm oil in their frying oil blends for both performance and economic reasons.
