There’s a renewed and growing interest in the health benefits of science-based natural products, which can range plant-based fibers to green tea extracts. In fact, the field has grown so big that when one specific product is highlighted as a superfood, it is quite an accomplishment. The July/August issue of Alternative Medicine magazine hails Malaysian red palm fruit oil as a superfood, citing the opinions of such experts as Dr. Mehmet Oz, nutritional expert Felicia Stoler, RD and alternative expert and clinician Bryce Wylde, DHMHS.
Among the attributes that earn Malaysian red palm fruit oil this distinction:
• It contains 15 times more beta carotene then carrots, and 30 times more than tomatoes
• It helps protect against heart disease by supporting healthy cholesterol levels
• It has a high smoke point (it won’t break down during cooking)
• It has a neutral flavor
Carotino Red Palm & Canola Oil, available in the U.S., is approved by the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil.
