Edible Oils

Our edible oils are derived from plants and can be used for cooking. Some of the edible oils that we supply are Soya bean (soybean) oil, Corn (Maize) oil, Sunflower oil, and Palm oil.



Soya Bean (Soybean) Oil

This vegetable oil is extracted from soya bean seeds. It is one of the most consumed vegetable oil around the world. We supply two types of soya bean oils: the crude and the hydrogenated. The crude soya bean oil is unrefined and at room temperature, it is semi-solid. The hydrogenated soya bean oil is refined and goes through a heating process. The hydrogenated soya bean oil is used widely in food manufacturing and also for deep frying, baking, and roasting.


Corn (Maize) Oil

This edible oil is extracted from the germ of corn. Fatty acids and phospholipids are removed from crude corn oil. It is used mainly in cooking, especially as a frying oil because of its resistance to smoking or discoloration. The oil is 100% fat and contains no carbohydrates or proteins. Corn oil’s unique chemistry also makes it an important ingredient in a range of products not associated with cooking. For example, corn oil is often found in soaps, shampoos, household cleaners, and personal care products.


Sunflower Oil

Sunflower oil is produced from sunflower seeds. This oil is light in taste and appearance. It is a combination of monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats with low saturated fat levels. There are three types of sunflower oils that we supply: NuSun, Linoleic, and High Oleic. They differ in oleic levels and each one offers unique properties. Refined sunflower oil is clear, light amber in color, and is liquid at room temperature. Refined sunflower oil is used as a frying oil and unrefined sunflower oil is used as a salad dressing in Eastern Europe.


Palm Oil

Palm oil is an edible oil derived from the fruit of oil palms. There are two types of palm oil: crude palm oil and palm kernel oil. Crude palm oil is derived from squeezing the fleshy fruit and it is often reddish in color, and the palm kernel oil comes from crushing the kernel in the middle of the fruit.
