So, what is fractionated palm kernel oil?

Fractionated palm kernel oil is a type of edible oil that is derived from the kernel of the palm fruit. The oil is extracted through a process called fractionation, which separates the oil into its different components. This process results in an oil that is solid at room temperature, making it a popular ingredient in the food industry for its ability to create a smooth and creamy texture in food products. Fractionated palm kernel oil is also known for its high stability and resistance to oxidation, which makes it an ideal ingredient for products that require a long shelf life. However, some concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, leading to increased demand for sustainably sourced alternatives.
