Crude palm oil is the unrefined form of palm oil, extracted from the fruit of the oil palm tree (Elaeis guineensis). It is a reddish-yellow, thick, and oily liquid that contains a mixture of free fatty acids, glycerides, and other impurities. Crude palm oil is not fit for direct consumption and requires further refining to remove impurities and improve the oil’s color, taste, and odor. The refining process results in the production of refined palm oil, which is commonly used in cooking, baking, and frying, as well as in the production of processed foods, cosmetics, and other products.
