Palm Oil

Palm oil  is a type of vegetable oil that comes from the fruit of oil palm trees. It is commonly used in a variety of products, including food, cosmetics, and biofuels.

Oil palm trees are native to West Africa but are now grown extensively in tropical regions around the world, particularly in Indonesia and Malaysia. These countries produce over 85% of the global supply of palm oil.


One reason for the popularity of palm oil is its high yield compared to other vegetable oils such as soybean or canola oil. This means that less land is needed to grow the same amount of oil, making it a cost-effective option for manufacturers.

Types of Palm Oil Offered

We offer various types of palm oil to meet the diverse needs and preferences of our customers. These include:

CP8 (Superolein)

  • Use: CP8, or Superolein, is commonly used in the food industry, particularly for frying, due to its higher resistance to oxidation and longer shelf life compared to other vegetable oils.

  • Cloud Point: Ranges between 6°C to 10°C, making it suitable for use in warmer climates without solidifying.

  • Iodine Value: Approximately 56 - 65 g I2/100g, indicating a moderate level of unsaturation.

  • Slip Melting Point: About 24°C, which is lower than traditional palm oil, contributing to its liquid state at room temperature in tropical climates.


  • Use: Like CP8, CP10 is also used in the food industry for frying, baking, and as a component in fat spreads. It offers a slightly higher cloud point than CP8, making it versatile for various applications.

  • Cloud Point: Around 10°C to 12°C.

  • Iodine Value: Typically around 54 - 58 g I2/100g, suggesting it has a slightly lower level of unsaturation than CP8.

  • Slip Melting Point: Slightly higher than CP8, usually around 24°C to 26°C.

Palm Stearin

  • Use: Palm Stearin is the solid fraction obtained from the fractionation of palm oil. It's used in the manufacture of margarine, shortening, and non-dairy creamers.

  • Cloud Point: Depends on the specific blend but generally higher than CP8 and CP10.

  • Iodine Value: Lower than CP8 and CP10, indicating higher saturation. Values can range significantly but are typically below 50 g I2/100g.

  • Slip Melting Point: Higher than both CP8 and CP10, ranging from 44°C to 56°C, making it solid at room temperature.

Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD)

  • Use: PFAD is a by-product of the palm oil refining process and is used in the manufacture of soaps, detergents, and as a feedstock for biofuel.

  • Cloud Point: Not typically applicable as PFAD is not used for dietary purposes in its raw form.

  • Iodine Value: High, due to the concentration of free fatty acids, though the exact value can vary widely based on the refining process and source material.

  • Slip Melting Point: Varies, but it's generally higher than CP8 and CP10 due to the presence of more saturated fats.

Growing Information


Palm oil comes from the fruit of oil palm trees. These trees are native to West and Central Africa but are now extensively grown in Asia, Africa, and Latin America due to increasing global demand for palm oil. Indonesia and Malaysia lead in palm oil production, yielding 18 to 30 tons of Fresh Fruit Bunches per hectare annually. 


Oil palm trees thrive in tropical climates with temperatures between 30–32°C. Consistently warm temperatures and high humidity levels are crucial for the healthy growth of this plant.

The plantation should ideally be in an area that receives plenty of sunlight and rainfall. Proper management of palm oil plantations is essential to ensure high yields and sustainable practices.

Mature palms in Indonesia and Malaysia can produce an average of 18 to 30 tons of Fresh Fruit Bunches (FFB) per hectare per year. The fruits of the oil palm are available year-round, making it a reliable crop.


Successful palm oil cultivation requires careful planning, management, and commitment to sustainability.
