What is Palm Oil

Palm oil comes from palm trees native to coastal West and Southwest Africa, where it’s been consumed for thousands of years. It’s semi-solid at room temperature and differs from palm kernel oil in nutritional composition.

How is it used?

Palm oil is used for cooking and is also added to many ready-to-eat foods in your grocery store.

Its taste is considered savory and earthy.

Unrefined palm oil is a traditional staple in Nigerian and Congolese cuisines, and it’s especially well suited for curries and other spicy dishes. Some people describe its flavor as being similar to carrot or pumpkin.

Unrefined vs. refined palm oil

Unrefined palm oil is raw oil that is pressed directly from the palm plant. It’s reddish in color, with a distinct odor and flavor. This type is more often used in traditional cooking in West African countries such as Nigeria.

On the other hand, refined palm oil goes through a number of processing steps to give it a neutral color and flavor. It is used more widely in food manufacturing or for frying mass-produced foods.
