Palm oil is a vegetable oil with a neutral taste extracted from palm fruits. The oil consists of 50% saturated and 50% unsaturated fat, it contains a number of antioxidants and does not turn rancid easily. It does not adversely affect the body's cholesterol levels.
Palm oil is a foodstuff and therefore does not have an E number, although it is used as a carrier in food supplements. There is therefore no legal restriction on how much can be consumed.
Palm oil is extracted by boiling palm fruits with steam and then mechanically pressing them without the use of solvents.
The palm oil used by Pharma Nord comes from Sweden and is sourced exclusively from RSPO-certified sustainable plantations. It is non-GMO and free of trans fatty acids.
