Looking for a great alternative to olive oil for heart healthy cuisine? Our Red Palm Fruit oil is a source of nutrients with a high smoke point. Savory and earthy, Red Palm Fruit Oil is uniquely rich in the potent antioxidant vitamin E, an excellent source of beta-carotene, and sodium-free.
New Roots Herbal’s Red Palm Fruit Oil has a deep orange colour that comes from a high concentration of carotenes like beta-carotene and lycopene, the antioxidants found in carrots and tomatoes, but which occur in red palm fruit oil in much higher concentrations. The body converts beta-carotene into vitamin A, which helps promote a strong immune system and contributes to the maintenance of normal vision. Red palm fruit oil is one of the richest natural sources of tocotrienols and tocopherols (vitamin E) that protect body tissues from fat oxidation. The combination of vitamin E, tocotrienols, carotenes, coenzyme Q10, and other molecules that quench free-radicals makes red palm fruit oil an antioxidant superfood.
Use as is, on vegetables, in salads, spread on bread, for cooking, baking, high-heat frying, etc. No refrigeration required. Naturally thickens to a paste under 21 °C (70 °F).
Red palm fruit oil is an excellent source of vitamin A. It contains 3 to 8 times more retinol activity equivalents than carrots, and more than 50 times more retinol activity equivalents than tomatoes (weight for weight). Among all vegetable oils, red palm fruit oil has by far the highest level of naturally occurring tocotrienols (5.83 mg per 10 ml portion); tocopherols and tocotrienols are two forms of vitamin E, an antioxidant. Red palm fruit oil is nonhydrogenated. Contains 0.62 mg coenzyme Q10 per 10 ml portion. No artificial colours or preservatives. Orangutan- and elephant-friendly oil.
