Is it necessary to refine the crude palm kernel oil?
Palm oil is extracted from the palm fruit, while palm kernel oil is made from the nuts of the palm fruit. Palm kernel oil contains conversely fatty acids and lauric acid, which is great for frying, and contains no cholesterol, which is good for your health. Because of its characteristics, crude palm kernel oil is easily oxidized and needs to be refined in time to prolong its storage time in order to obtain higher commercial value. This article mainly introduces the necessity of palm kernel oil refining from four aspects.

1. Refined palm kernel oil is conducive to storage and is not easy for rancidity.
Compared with palm oil, palm kernel oil contains conversely fatty acids and lauric acid. The composition is unstable and easy to oxidize. It needs to be refined or fractionated in time to prolong the storage time. In addition, crude oil contains a large amount of water, which must be removed through the refining process in order to prolong the storage time of the oil.
2. The color of refined oil is better.
Crude palm kernel oil contains a variety of pigments and pigmentation, which is not transparent enough. After refining, the color of the oil is better, transparent and clear.
3.The refined palm kernel oil has a better flavor.
Unrefined palm kernel oil is slightly off-flavored and can be easily refined to obtain bright palm kernel oil with the better flavor. The refined palm kernel oil is suitable for food and non-food applications. And the purity of refined refining oil enables oil to be used in high temperature process, such as frying, baking and other operations.
4.Some high economic value by-products are produced during the cooking oil refining process.
You may not know that some high economic value by-products are produced during the cooking oil refining process, which are used for some food industries and cooking oil further processing.
◆ Phospholipids are used in food industry and medical treatment.
◆ Chlorophyll and carotene are widely used in medical treatment and food industry.
◆ Soaps are used to make soap, etc.
