Organic red palm oil from "Naturland Fair" certified project
Sustainable, fair and organic. Of course, our "Naturland Fair" certified palm oil has nothing to do with conventional palm oil that is produced for industrial uses and for which precious rainforests are cleared. On the contrary, with our partner project in Ghana, we support farming families on site and support sustainable cultivation without the catastrophic impacts on humans, animals and the environment.
Our untreated palm oil comes from organic cultivation and its nutritious value is often underestimated. It is a valuable source of vitamins A and E and an integral part of African and Asian cuisine.
Compared to our previous palm oil of EU organic standard, this product has a slightly stronger aroma and taste. We used to filter our previous palm oil before bottling which we skip now to receive a virgin oil with all its valuable ingredients, especially the fatty acid spectrum.
Palm oil is very heat resistant and can be used for steaming, frying and deep-frying or as basis for savoury spreads.
Against destruction of the environment and industrial agriculture
The oil palm is one of the most important crops in the world. Conventional cultivation in monocultures often involves clearing of rainforests which is criticised by many - and rightly so. Especially in Southeast Asia and Africa (Rwanda, Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand and the Philippines), still many hectares of rainforest are cleared to build more and larger plantations. This destroys the habitat of numerous animal and plant species. We dissociate from this kind of industrial agriculture as well as using foodstuffs for power generation, be it corn, grain or oil crops.
Organic palm oil, a traditional food crop
Palm oil has been a traditional, valuable food crop in Africa and Asia for centuries and should not be treated as industrial raw material. At Ölmühle Solling, we offer untreated palm oil from gentle production processes. It is marked by its natural orange-red colour and a characteristic taste. With its high content of carotenoids (precursors to vitamin A) and tocotrienols (vitamin E), it can make a valuable contribution to a sensible, balanced diet.
Ideal for frying and baking or as a spread.
