Palm Fruit Oil – Organic Fair Trade, Elaeis guineensis, is one of the world’s most popular vegetable oils due to its versatility and natural creamy texture, a universal raw material widely used in personal-care and cosmetic formulations, soaping, and throughout the food industry. This highly sought after natural ingredient is Fair Trade Certified through Fair For Life, a fair trade certifying agency ensuring sustainable practices are used from the point of harvest throughout the complete supply chain. After being extracted from the fruit of the palm tree, the oil is fully refined, resulting in a clean white to off-white colored oil that carries a bland to nonexistent odor and flavor profile. As a result of the oil's high level of saturated fatty acids, organic fair trade palm fruit oil is solid at room temperature. Fair Trade Certification provides consumers and manufacturers confidence in their purchasing decisions not only in terms of sustainable farming practices being used, but the working conditions, pay, and resources offered to the farmers and overall positive impact the families and community benefit from.
The 15 kg “bag-in-box” pack size offered for this material is also referred to as organic palm shortening due to additional processing steps the refined palm oil goes through. Once the crude palm oil is fully refined, the resulting material goes through a votator which applies heat and continuously stirs the material to create a homogenous end-result yielding a balanced composition of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. Palm oil shortening is further tempered to increase its plasticity and improve its texture. Organic Palm Shortening is an integral ingredient in a wide variety of baked products.
