Malaysian palm oil also stands up to high heat, and retains the natural flavor and textures of foods.
Palm oil is a premium ingredient which is non-GMO, and rich in brain- and heart-healthy nutrients. In Malaysia, palm oil is sustainably produced, making it an environmentally friendly choice for a wide variety of products.
