Great Day Houston Host Deborah Duncan recently welcomed guest Sherry Torkos, a holistic pharmacist and author, who explained why products made with palm fruit oil may be good for our hearts and brains. Found in Smart Balance Peanut Butter as well as many energy bars, a cooking oil formula and in supplements, Malaysian Palm Fruit Oil is rich in beta carotene and potent antioxidants. She added that NIH-funded research indicates that the Vitamin E tocotrienols found in palm fruit oil may support brain health. Torkos advised cooking with heart-healthy and brain-healthy palm fruit oil because, unlike olive oil, it is heat stable and won’t produce trans fats during the cooking process. Malaysian palm fruit oil can be found in health food stores and at Whole Foods.
