About Royal Palm

Royal Palm procures authentic red palm oil directly from West African villages where it has been produced for over 5000 years. Purchasing organic palm oil from African villagers ensures the authenticity of the product, saves the environment while generating income and employment for the local population.
 
Authentic palm oil is one of the richest natural plant sources of carotenoids with concentrations of 500–700 ppm, giving it a reddish color. Organic palm oil has fifteen times more carotenoids than carrots and three hundred times more than tomatoes. No other vegetable oil contains carotenoids in such significant quantities. Other nutrients include Vitamin E, D Natural Co-Enzyme Q 10, and Phytosterol, which contains cholesterol-reducing compounds. 
 
The traditional methods of producing palm Oil requires no preservatives or chemical additives, yet can stay on the shelf for up to 7 years without refrigeration.
 
Oil palm trees grow wild all over the African continent and have been processed for over 5000 years in villages. Palm trees have since been transferred and in some cases genetically modified by large corporations with plantations across Asia and South America for mass production of refined palm oil. The refining process includes chemical additives, bleaching, deodorizing, and other methods that strip off most of its nutrients. Some brands add red food coloring to give it a healthy look, but they can’t fake the taste and smell of the original oil neither can they replace all the lost nutrients with artificial substitutes.
 
Royal palm Oil is about the only brand outside Africa that is produced in African villages using traditional methods that have been passed down through the ages. 

Royal Palm Oil contains Tocols, powerful natural antioxidants and therefore resistant to rancidity. It is shelf-stable with a high melting point therefore needs no hydrogenation and therefore no trans-fatty acid while resistant to oxidation. 
 
Royal Palm Oil has a very high smoke point at about 425 degrees F., making it an excellent oil for frying. However, the longer you use high heat, the more you will destroy the natural antioxidants. Studies have shown that about 70% of the carotenes are retained after one deep-frying, but after four deep-fries there will be virtually no carotenes left.
 
 
While the mass-produced oil works well for soap making, cosmetic and industrial purposes, those who know the real thing will not cook with it unless there is no alternative.  Finding the real thing in the US and Europe proved futile to the founders of Royal palm. This prompted us to procure our oil from villages across West Africa where the Oil Palm tree grows naturally in the tropical rain forest as opposed to large habitat destructive plantations with GMO trees and chemical extraction processes. This arrangement between Royal Palm and village producers not only saves the environment, But It also brings a 100% nutrient-rich cooking oil to the rest of the world while creating gainful employment for African villagers.
When you purchase Royal Palm Oil, you are protecting wildlife habitats, supporting the environment and employing African village producers not large corporate interests with large plantations and huge industrial complexes.
