Refined, Bleached, Deodorised Palm Oil
Refined, Bleached, Deodorised Palm Oil (RBDPO) is used in the manufacturing of food products. RBDPO is fractionated further to produce palm olein as cooking oil, or processed into other products.
Refined, Bleached, Deodorised Palm Olein
Palm Olein is the liquid oil for frying and cooking applications, and is blended with other oils to improve their stability/shelf life and to minimize smoke formation during high-temperature frying applications.
Refined, Bleached, Deodorised Palm Stearin
Palm stearin is utilized for high temperature industrial frying applications such as in the production of instant noodles. Palm stearin is free of trans fatty acids, and is used as a replacement for hydrogenated oils such as soya bean and Canola. Palm stearin may also be utilized in non-edible applications such as in the manufacturing of soaps and candles.
Palm Fatty Acid Distillate
Palm Fatty Acid Distillate (PFAD) is a by-product derived from the refining of crude palm oil. It is used for many industries such as soap industries, animal food industries and is also used as raw materials for bio-diesel and chemical industries.
Crude Palm Kernel Oil
The crushing of palm kernels produces crude palm kernel oil (CPKO) and palm kernel expeller (PKE). It is very similar to coconut oil in that it has a high percentage of lauric acid which allows it to produce hard soaps with good lather. Palm Kernel Oil is therefore a cost-effective substitute for Crude Coconut Oil in the production of quality soaps. Palm Kernel Oil is part of a group of Lauric Oils, which is largely used by the oleochemical industry for the production of cleaning agents and detergents.
Palm Kernel Meal
Palm kernel expeller (PKE) is a by-product from crushing of palm kernels by mechanical means. Palm kernel expeller is a good source of protein and fat (for energy). Palm kernel expeller can be included in the diets of beef cattle, dairy cows, sheep, poultry and other domesticated animals.
Biodiesel (B100) is the ‘drop in fuel’ produced from oil palm. It is used as a direct replacement for existing mineral/fossil diesels and is an environmentally friendly diesel fuel, which can power existing diesel engines. Biodiesel is a much cleaner fuel than fossil diesel, producing far lower level of pollutants. In the last decade there has been a determined political effort to identify and develop suitable fuels for society’s future needs.
Crude Glycerine is a by-product of the production of biodiesel via transesterification. It is a sweet-tasting, non-toxic, odourless, viscous liquid that is widely used in food, pharmaceutical and cosmestics formulations.
Vitamin E is a generic name for the family of eight major compounds that have been found to possess Vitamin E activity. These compounds are α, β, γ and δ tocopherols and α, β, γ and δ tocotrienols. These compounds cannot be synthesized in the body hence they need to be obtained through the diet. The various forms of Vitamin E are present in our food, but at levels insufficient to meet our daily requirements, hence need to be supplemented in our diet. The Vitamin E found in palm oil are mainly Tocotrienols. SOP Nutraceuticals Sdn Bhd offers Tocotrienols in 3 forms; Oil-based concentrates, soft-gel capsules and powdered forms.
Palm Mixed Carotene/ Carotene Rich-Fraction
Palm Oil is one of the richest natural plant source of non-GMO carotenoids. SOP Nutraceuticals employs Malaysian Palm Oil Board (MPOB) patented process to extract and concentrate the palm carotenoids from crude palm oil.
Palm Oil contain at least 13 carotenoids and the 3 main carotenoids are α – carotene, β – carotene and Lycopene. Aside from Pro-Vitamin A activity, the carotenoids also acts as effective antioxidant, dietary supplement and natural colorant. Palm Carotene comes in Carotene Concentrate, Carotene Powder and Carotene Emulsion forms.
