Palm kernel oil, palm oil cake

Palm kernel oil, which is extracted from the nut, or kernel, of a species of African palm tree, is commonly referred to as tropical oil. Palm kernel oil is primarily composed of fatty triglycerides, with approximately 80 percent saturated fats and 20 percent unsaturated fats. Palm kernel oil can be found in a number of products, including margarine, vegetable oil and shortening, creamers, chocolate and ice cream. Depending on the amount per serving, palm kernel oil may offer some health benefits.
Palm kernel oil is oil extracted from the seed of the African oil palm. The weight of 1 teaspoon of palm kernel oil is 4 grams. In addition there is 180 grams in 1 cup. It contains vitamin E. However, due to its high calorie content, using palm kernel oil as a primary source of vitamin E is not recommended.
Palm kernel cake (PKC) is a by-product of the palm kernel oil production process. PKC is considered a medium-grade protein feed, containing 14.6-16% crude protein and is used to feed cattle, pigs and other livestock either as single feed (with only vitamin and mineral supplements) or in combination with other types of feed such as wheat bran, dried fish, etc.
