18 months after production providing storage conditions are maintained.

 

CHARACTERISTICS

Even though it is extracted from the same fruit of the palm tree this oil presents different characteristics than palm oil. This oil is mainly composed by short chain fatty acids (C12:0 and C14:0) and presents important physical characteristics for specific products like: toiled soaps, cocoa butter substitutes etc.
