Carotino is a blend of red palm fruit and canola oil. Red palm oil has been used for over 5,000 years and is still used in over 130 countries worldwide.
Red palm oil is obtained from the flesh of the oil palm fruit. It shouldn’t be confused with palm kernel oil which comes from the kernel or seed of the palm fruit. Both are edible oils, but have very different chemical compositions.
The red palm oil used in Carotino comes from environmentally sustainable plantations in Malaysia and is cultivated under strict environmental controls.
Carotino’s patented oil extraction method means that the red palm oil does not need to be hydrogenated – unlike many other cooking oils – so the natural nutrients are retained and it’s free from harmful ‘trans fatty acids’ or ‘trans fats’.
