Crude Palm Oil is the world’s richest natural plant source of carotenoids. Malaysian crude palm oil contains 500 to 700 ppm carotenoids, of which 37% is α- and 50% is β-carotene. Carotenoids are characteristically reddish and possess high antioxidant properties. Carotenoids are well-known for their pro-vitamin A activity, beneficial effect for skin health and are involved in various biological mechanisms in human physiology.

The modified refining process of Malaysian Crude Palm Oil involves pre-treatment followed by deodorization and deacidification by molecular distillation. This produces Red Palm Oil that meets the quality specifications of refined oils while retaining many of its beneficial minor components. Malaysian Red Palm Oil is a highly nutritious premium vegetable oil. This event will update participants on the current scientifically proven information of the nutritional and health benefits of carotenoids from Malaysian Red Palm Oil.
