One simple recipe – a salad dressed with Malaysian palm fruit oil-based vinaigrette – showed News Channel 8 viewers how to sneak functional foods into their diets
Chef Gerard Viverito, culinary educator, appeared on a News Channel 8 talk show to let people know how to make any meal more healthful with a few simple ingredients.
For example, the Malaysian palm fruit oil has many nutrients that support heart and neurological health. It’s a plentiful source of tocotrienols, a form of Vitamin E that may help protect your brain should you have a stroke. It also won’t raise your cholesterol. And the beautiful red color is more than just pleasing to the eye – it’s a sign that the red palm fruit oil is rich in beta carotene antioxidants.
Chef Viverito says you can make any meal healthier. Try some Malaysian palm fruit oil in place of your typical oil choice today!
