IF YOU think oil and good health don't mix, a new product on our shelves might change your mind.
Carotino Palm Fruit Oil is derived from the fruit of the palm tree, is cholesterol-free and is high in a number of vitamins, such as A and E.
The oil's natural rich, red colour is due to the high levels of a group of pigmented compounds called caratenoids, which are a source of high levels of vitamin A and two forms of vitamin E, namely tocopherols and tocotrienols.
Aside from containing no cholesterol it also contains no trans-fatty acids, preservatives and artificial colourants.
The oil would work well in frying, cooking and baking and it might even be used as healthy salad dressings. - Keitumetse Segoai
