MEDIA BUZZ: Malaysian sustainable palm oil has been making news recently. In a series of 30 Second Mom articles, dietitian nutritionist Felicia Stoler gave moms everywhere information about how Malaysian palm oil benefits health and wildlife.
In her first article, Stoler compared Malaysian sustainable palm oil with four other common cooking oils. While she said that olive oil is great for heart and skin health, it won’t hold up well to heat. “It degrades before 400 degrees Fahrenheit.” However her review of Malaysian sustainable palm oil was more glowing. “Buttery flavor, full of good fats, loaded with tocotrienols (a member of the vitamin E family), non-GMO, and stable in high heats,” she wrote. “Palm oil from Malaysia is also always sustainable.” It’s also naturally trans fat-free, and has great versatility in the kitchen.
That sustainability was the subject of her second 30 Second Mom article. “Don’t cook with GMO oils,” wrote Stoler. “Malaysian palm fruit oil is non-GMO, heat stable and supports a healthy lifestyle. It also supports a sustainable environment for animals in Malaysia.” In fact, Malaysia sets aside more than half of its land for conservation. This and other wildlife conservation measures are preserving orangutan habitats.
Stoler’s third article mentioned Malaysian sustainable palm oil’s anti-aging properties. “A wonderful antioxidant nutrient found in certain fats that helps to fight skin damage from the inside out is vitamin E,” Stoler explained. She recommended Malaysian red palm oil, which is nature’s richest source of vitamin E tocotrienols.
