This certification is an important development in ExcelVite’s Sustainability Initiative as it underscores its commitment toward ensuring that the entire value chain and production of palm oil is sustainable.
The collaboration covers several objectives primarily associated with commitment to sustainable palm oil production, by assisting local oil palm smallholders in ExcelVite Malaysia’s surrounding area to achieve the Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) certification before the year ends.
Over the past eight years, the International Conference on Palm Phytonutrients and Chronic Diseases has provided a good platform for researchers and the industry to share the latest research and findings on palm phytonutrients with research scientists, medical doctors and formulators.
Palm-derived nutrients have been studied for more than 30 years and have been the topic of more than 180 research projects.
Tocotrienols have 40 to 60 times the antioxidant power of the more common Vitamin E tocopherols. These tocotrienols, found primarily in red palm oil, can help manage cholesterol levels, help protect against stroke damage and may even reduce cancer risk.
