Palm Oil - Sustainable
Palm oil has we well balanced fatty acid composition whereby the level of saturatted fatty acids is almost the same as the amount of unsaturated fatty acids. Palmitic acid makes up 44-45% with oleic acid being 39-40% with linoleic acid being 10-11%. A trace amount of linolenic acid rounds out the profile to produce a very stable oil not readily prone to oxidation.
