NUTRITIONAL VALUE OF PALM OIL
Palm oil, long perceived as an unhealthy tropical oil, is actually a beneficial fat source when in its natural form.
Palm oil is high in saturated fatty acids, but,it is good for human health when consumed moderately.
Unrefined Palm oil remains a much healthier oil than any hydrogenated vegetable oil.
Palm oil comes from the fruit of the Elaeis guineensuis tree, also called the African oil palm tree.
Palm oil is the most versatile of all vegetable oils. Consisting of 50% saturated fat and 50% unsaturated fat.
It is semi-solid at room temperature. Palm oil is highly resistant to oxidation, this help it to maintain stable quality through the shelf life.
The consumption of Palm oil is often being frowned at because of its saturated fat content. The saturated fatty acids of Palm oil, like coconut oil, are actually not as harmful as the public believes, and in fact actually have health benefits.
They are medium chain triglycerides (MCTs). MCT's are only found in mother's milk, tropical oils, and milk fat. They are extremely easy for the body to digest and it increases the body energy efficiency.
Medium chain fats can be directly converted into energy in the liver, unlike other fats which must be processed in the intestine and then absorbed into the bloodstream.
MCT's are a valuable source of nutrition for people who cannot easily digest other fats, as well as athletes who can benefit from the highly efficient energy.
Not only is palm oil a rare source of medium chain fatty acids, it is also a source of healthy unsaturated fats.
Palm oil is cholesterol-free. It is a well-balanced fat, with 39% oleic acid (omega-9) and 10% linoleic acid (omega-6).
These essential fatty acids help to lower blood cholesterol levels in the body.
They are necessary for bone, joint, and skin health.
Palm oil is a rich source of antioxidants. It is the richest vegetable oil source of tocotrienols - which are a potent form of vitamin E. Vitamin E strengthens the immune system, and protects skin cells from toxins and UV radiation.
From its reddish-orange hue, Palm oil is also a good source of beta-carotene, a nutrient found in sweet potatoes, carrots, and other orange foods.
