RBD Palm Stearin
RBD Palm Stearin is the more solid fraction obtained by fractionation of palm oil after crystallization at controlled temperatures. It is thus a co product of palm olein and is always traded at a discount to palm oil and palm olein making it a cost effective ingredient in several applications. The physical characteristics of palm stearin differ significantly from those of palm oil and it is available in a wider range of melting points and iodine values.
RBD Palm Stearin is a very useful source of fully natural hard fat component for products such as shortening and pastry and bakery margarines.
