We supply a variety of edible oils as highlighted below.

Palm Oil

An edible vegetable oil made from palm fruit. Palm fruit is the source of both palm oil (extracted from the fruit) and palm kernel oil (extracted from the seeds).

Refined Palm Oil: Refined palm oil is obtained from refining crude palm oil. It is a light yellow liquid and semi-solid at room temperature, melting to a clear yellow liquid when heated.

RBD Palm Olein (RBD refined, bleached and deodorized): RBD palm oil is obtained from separating refined palm oil to liquid parts (olein) and solid parts (stearin). It is a clear yellow liquid at room temperature.

Palm Stearin (Vegetable Fat): Palm stearin is a white solid at room temperature which melts to a yellow clear liquid when heated.

Sunflower Oil

An edible vegetable oil made by pressing and processing sunflower seeds. The refined oil is clear, light amber in color and remains liquid at room temperature. It is used as cooking (frying) oil and in personal care products.

High-Linoleic Sunflower Oil: High linoleic sunflower oil typically has at least 69% linoleic (polyunsaturated) acid.

High-Oleic Sunflower Oil: High oleic sunflower oil has at least 80% oleic (monounsaturated) acid.

RBDW Sunflower Oil (RBD refined, bleached, deodorized and winterized): RBDW sunflower oil is obtained from separating refined sunflower oil and exposing it to further processing. It is clear, light amber in color and remains liquid at room temperature.

Soybean Oil (Soya Oil)

An edible vegetable oil made by crushing (mechanical extraction) and further chemical processing (solvent extraction) of soya beans to extract the oil. The oil is then refined and sometimes hydrogenated.

Hydrogenated Soybean Oil: Hydrogenation is the process of heating the oil and passing hydrogen bubbles through it, which makes it denser, making it suitable for deep frying and food manufacturing like margarine and other butter substitutes.

Crude Soybean Oil: Unrefined soybean oil is darker amber in color, semi-solid at room temperature and melts to an amber liquid when heated.

Corn oil

This is a germ oil and therefore contains far more essential elements than ordinary seed oils. Corn oil differs from other vegetable oils through its high levels of essential fatty acids (56 %), vitamin E, phytosterols and other important minor components, such as coenzymes Q9 and Q10.

Essential Fatty Acids (linoleic acid omega-6 and alpha-linolenic acid omega-3) are essential biological elements that need to be absorbed through the daily diet, because the body itself is not able to synthesise them.
