Although not well known in the United States, palm oil has been the oil of choice in many part of the world for centuries. Interest in this natural oil, as well as other exotic oils such as coconut and avocado, is rising, due in part to their health benefits. Reporter Laura Cassiday profiled red palm oil in the February 2017 edition of Inform Magazine. In the article, she shared red palm oil’s health benefits and reviewed how the minimally processed oil is produced. The Malaysian palm oil industry has developed and patented a low-temperature refining process that produces a high quality and nutrient-rich oil.
