Palm oil is non-GMO, balanced and ultra-nutritious. This naturally trans fat-free oil contains almost equal amounts of unsaturated fats and saturated fats. In the body, palm oil has virtually no adverse impact on your cholesterol levels. Palm oil is also a great source of vitamin E tocotrienols, powerful antioxidants that help protect you from chronic diseases.
Families trying to eat cleaner, more natural meals are happy to learn that non-GMO palm oil is an increasingly popular ingredient in prepared foods. Palm oil comes from the fruit of the oil palm tree which grows in lush plantations near the equator. Malaysian sustainable palm oil is preferred by many American companies because the Malaysian palm oil industry follows environmentally friendly agricultural policies.
