Crude Palm Oil
Palm oil is edible oil that is extracted from the pulp of fruit of oil palms. The color of the pulp is red. That’s why crude palm oil is naturally similar to pulp color because of high inactive vitamin A content. It is different from kernel oil or coconut oil. Commonly it is combined or mixed with coconut oil to make highly saturated vegetable fat, which is also used for cooking purposes.
The main usage of CPO is for cooking purposes and is largely used in South-East Asia, West Africa and some parts of Brazil. Commercial kitchens use it due to its low cost. It is not as healthy as its counterparts due to the high content of saturated fats. Nigeria is the Largest producer of CPO in Africa. It is also used for making biodiesel and one of its by-products is Glycerin.
