Palm oil is an edible vegetable oil from the fruit of an oil palm tree, which are originally native to Africa.  In general, palm oil is referring to oil derived from the reddish pulp of the fruit.  The crude oil itself is naturally red in color.  Palm oil that has been refined, bleached, and deodorized is known as RBD palm oil, or simply RBD oil.  Similar oils include palm kernel oil, which is comes from crushing the kernel of the same plant, and coconut oil, which is derived from crushing the kernel in the coconut palm.

Although 44 countries produce palm oil, almost 90% of the world’s supply come from Malaysia and Indonesia.  Palm oil is used for many products – including as a cooking oil, in packaging, or as animal feed.
