Age old wisdom and common sense tells us that there is a place and time for everything. And while it may appear, particularly for purists, that butter has the best of it where baking is concerned, it is a point well-noted that margarine has its roots in the business, equally deep and long-running.
Palm oil is versatile. There is no disputing the fact. About 90% of the world’s palm oil production is used as food. The physio-chemical properties of palm oil and its fractions are readily adaptable as versatile components in most of today’s fat-based food formulations required by the food industry. As such, it has been mandated that the nutritional properties of palm oil, as well as its fractions, be adequately demonstrated. The result? A truly malleable product which is in so many words, a treasure.
Food operators and manufacturers can now opt for healthier palm based margarine, shortening, butter oil and other baking fats from Carotino producer. The specifications and organoleptical qualities of fats can be tailored made to suit a wide range of baked products.

In a nutshell, so to speak, the palm fruit, and consequently its descendents, are ever omnipresent.
