What are the characteristics of palm oil?

Palm oil is a tropical woody vegetable oil. It is the vegetable oil variety with the largest production, consumption and international trade volume in the world. It is also called “the world’s three major vegetable oils” together with soybean oil and rapeseed oil. Why the palm oil is so popular in the world, do you know? What are the characteristics of palm oil? Next, Benteng Machinery will give you a detail introduction of them.

Palm fruit oil is dark orange-red, under the action of sunlight and air, palm fruit oil will gradually decolorize. Palm fruit oil is slightly sweet and has a pleasant violet scent. Fresh palm kernel oil is milky white or yellowish, has a solid consistency and has a pleasant walnut aroma. Palm kernel oil is easy to oxidize and decompose during storage, and the smell becomes pungent.

The characteristics of palm oil are as follows:

1. Contains more saturated fatty acids. It has good stability, is not easy to oxidize and deteriorate, and has a high smoke point, so it is very suitable for fried food.

2. Palm oil can be fractionated to separate the solid fat from the liquid fat. Among them, solid fat can be used to replace expensive cocoa butter for margarine and shortening. The liquid fat is used as cold dressing or cooking oil, and its taste is light and refreshing. A large amount of unfractionated palm oil is used in soap making industry. Soap produced from palm oil has a durable lather and strong detergency.

3. Palm oil is rich in vitamin A (500-700ppm) and vitamin E (500-800ppm). In order to further improve the nutritional value of palm oil, research on increasing the content of unsaturated fatty acids has been actively carried out, and foreign countries have achieved certain results in this regard.
