Our organic extra virgin palm fruit oil is a rich source of vitamin E oil and antioxidants, and is stable against heat and oxidation. Palm fruit oil is commonly used in food products as a healthier alternative when compared with other higher saturated oils. It will melt at about 80-90 degrees and turn to liquid. This particular oil is unrefined and extra virgin. No chemicals or solvents are used during the extraction of our palm fruit oil. It is popularly used in baking, frying, food mixes, coatings, ice cream and many more.

Mountain Rose Herbs will only support palm oil programs which adhere to strict environmental sustainability programs. As is our standard, the harvester and manufacturer of the palm oil we offer adheres to highly detailed sustainable harvesting protocols with oversight from state and third party environmental programs including EcoSocial, and with the assistance of the Roundtable for Sustainable Palm Oil.
