More and more Americans are starting to discover the healthful benefits of Malaysian sustainable palm oil. Comparable nutritionally to olive oil, it can be used for cooking at higher temperatures than olive oil and is ideal for those cooking applications when you don’t want the flavor of olive oil.
Unlike other oils, Malaysian palm fruit oil doesn’t lose its nutritional value when it’s cooked in high heat. It is an all-natural non-hydrogenated product that won’t raise your cholesterol. It can be cooked at a higher temperature than butter, corn oil and virgin olive oil.
Most oils will only keep for four to six months after they are opened. Olive oil can last for a year, but that’s only if it is refrigerated. Malaysian palm fruit oil can be stored at room temperature for 12 months without going rancid.
