Anchors of WLS News in Chicago, an ABC-TV affiliate, invited well-known Chef Gerard Viverito to explain the latest cooking trend called Functional Cooking. Using Malaysian Red Palm Fruit Oil as an example, Chef Gerard told the TV audience that Functional Cooking is about substituting ingredients with healthier all-natural, beneficial versions. As he prepared an Alaskan Halibut dish, Chef Gerard elaborated that Malaysian Red Palm Fruit Oil is rich in vitamins A and E. Studies indicate that red palm oil supports heart and neurological health. A rapidly growing body of science also shows that the Vitamin E tocotrienols found in Malaysian Red Palm Fruit Oil may also be beneficial for cancer treatments, supporting kidney health and lowering the risk of skin cancer.
