Characteristics and main USES of palm oil

The characteristics of

Palm oil is semi-solid at room temperature, and its consistency and melting point depend largely on the content of free fatty acids. Palm oil with low acid value is often called soft oil, while oil with high acid value is called hard oil.

1. It contains more saturated fatty acids. Good stability, not easy to occur oxidation deterioration, the smoke point is high, so as to be used as Fried food is very suitable.

2. Palm oil can be extracted to separate solid fat from liquid fat. Solid fats can be used instead of expensive cocoa butter for margarine and shortening; Liquid oils are used in cold or cooking oils for a light and refreshing taste. A large amount of unextracted palm oil is used in the soap industry. Soap made from palm oil produces long-lasting foam and has a strong decontamination capability.

3. Palm oil is rich in vitamin A(500-700 PPM) and vitamin E(500-800 PPM).In order to further improve the nutritional value of palm oil, research on increasing the content of unsaturated fatty acids has been actively carried out, and some achievements have been made abroad.

Fresh palm kernel oil has a creamy white or yellowish consistency, like a solid, and a pleasing nuclear aroma. Palm kernel oil is easy to oxidize and decompose during storage, and the smell becomes acrid.


The main purpose

Palm oil is widely used in cooking and food manufacturers around the world. It is used as cooking oil, crunchy fat and margarine. Like other edible oils, palm oil is easy to digest, absorb and promote health. Palm oil is an important ingredient in fat, which has mild properties and is a good material for food production. From the composition of palm oil, its high solid properties, glycerin content, allow food to avoid hydrogenation and remain stable and effectively resist oxidation. It is also suitable for hot climates and is a good seasoning for pastry and bakery products. Palm oil is popular with food manufacturers because of its several properties.

Malaysia and Indonesia are the world’s leading producers of palm oil, accounting for more than 80 per cent of global output.

Transformation into biological aviation coal

On February 12, 2014, the civil aviation administration of China (CAAC) issued the approval letter of China’s first bio aviation coal technology standard project to Sinopec, marking the “ticket” for commercial application of bio aviation coal products with independent intellectual property rights in China. Bio-aviation coal is an aviation kerosene produced from renewable resources. The no. 1 bio aviation coal approved for airworthiness is based on palm oil and waste cooking oil.
