Palm fruit oil took center stage during a local Eyewitness News report on KTRK-TV Houston. The segment on Health Tips You’ve Never Heard of Before, featured Pharmacist Sherry Torkos. She explained that palm fruit oil is a healthy oil that increases good cholesterol, has lots of antioxidants and (unlike olive oil) stays potent when heated. She also cautioned viewers to look carefully at the palm oil labels, explaining that hydrogenated oils and palm kernel oil are very different than the healthier palm fruit oil.
