There are very few natural red palm oils available in America. Most palm oil in America has been refined, bleached and deodorized. RBD palm oil has a bland flavor and is completely colorless because all of the antioxidant vitamins have been stripped (carotenoids, tocopherols and tocotrienols). Our sustain-ably sourced, RSPO certified Natural red palm oil still contains these natural substances giving it a dark red-orange color not found in the refined products. Our Natural Red Palm Oil has been allowed to cool to room temperature. This causes the stearic acid to solidify and fall to the bottom of the vat. When the top liquid faction is then decanted, the fatty acid profile is higher in fat soluble vitamins and lower in saturated fats (which have solidified and dropped out). This yields fatty acids similar to olive oil with a very rich red-orange color, much deeper in hue than standard crude red palm oils. Most of the red palm oils that are available in America are not like Wilderness Family Naturals’ Natural Red Palm Oil. Instead they are crude palm oils that contain lower levels of carotenoids, tocopherols and tocotrienols and higher percentages of stearic acid, (an 18 carbon chain saturated fat). Another way that Wilderness Family Naturals’ Natural Red Palm Oil is different from crude palm oil is in taste. In our Natural Red Palm Oil the free fatty acids have been removed. By doing this, the taste of the palm oil becomes very mild and its shelf life is greatly extended. Wilderness Family Naturals’ Natural Red Palm Oil is rich in natural carotenoids (vitamin A), is a good source of tocopherols (natural vitamin E) and contains tocotrienols. It contains about 50% naturally occurring saturated fats and 50% unsaturated fats. The fats in Natural Red Palm Oil are not synthetically hydrogenated or altered in any way. The main fatty acid found in Natural Red Palm is oleic acid, which is the main type of fat in olive oil.
