Palmstearin

Characteristic properties

  • Palmstearin is a fraction of Palm Oil, with a high melting point, which is also high in saturated palmitic acid (C16:0)
  • The other dominant fatty acid is oleic acid (C18:1)
  • This is the solid fraction of Palm Oil, with a melting point > 45°C

Areas of application

Foods

  • Used in food formulations that require a certain amount of solid fat to add consistency or to attain a certain melting behaviour
  • By blending with unsaturated plant oils, the amount of solid fat can be adjusted
  • Used in the production of margarines and shortenings
  • Can be used as an equivalent for Cocoa Butter (CBE)

Background

Palmstearin is obtained from the flesh of the oil palm (Elaeis guineesis), which belongs to the palm tree Family (Arecaceae). Physical fractioning and subsequent filtration turn separated refined Palm Oil into an olein and a stearin phase. Although originally native to Africa, the oil palm is now mainly grown in Indonesia and Malaysia.

Sustainability

We are member of RSPO (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil). Certified RSPO production fosters the sustainable cultivation of palm oil. RSPO certifies the entire supply chain from the plantation to the production of final consumer products. In this supply chain Henry Lamotte Oils is an importer and packager of bulk containers for the processing industry.
