  • UK sources of red palm oil

    Hi. I've been reading about the benefits of red palm oil and I want to buy some. Don't know yet what to do with it; whether to use it for cooking or as a condiment / dressing - but first, I need to get some!

    Any one know of a supplier??? Thanks.

    You can get it from Amazon at Red Palm Oil, organic: Amazon.co.uk: Grocery or you could try this one Buy Palm Oil | We Stock Red Natural Unrefined Palm Oil and some branches of Sainsbury's sell it - you could always ask your local one to get hold of some for you! Good luck in finding some.

      I just got some from Amazon. It has a distinctive taste, but I really am enjoying it. Eggs cooked in it are really yummy. I also made chicken with paprika, cayenne, cumin and red palm oil and it was fantastic.

      Good luck finding some!

        Thanks for that - I have ordered a bottle from Amazon. How do you use / take it? Buoy1, I do like the chicken / paprika etc idea. Any quantities to suggest (i.e. nearer to a recipe!!)

          Have to confess that I haven't tried it as yet ... but it's something I definitely will be doing in the near future!

            I have used this (Carotino oil from Sainsbury's) for baking rice flour muffins before I went primal. I was quite keen to use it as it's a source of lycopene and I can't tolerate tomatoes which are the best source.

            If you do any primal baking with it, your cookies etc will come out a wonderful golden colour.

            Flavourwise it works well in oriental stir-fries , but leaves a film of oil in the mouth and on the lips which is unpleasant in my opinion.

              Just googled carotin oil - it contains canola oil, which I don't fancy.

                In the UK we call canola 'rapeseed oil'. 100g of British cold-pressed rapeseed oil contains 56.9 g Omega 9, 17.1 g omega 6 and 8.1 g omega 3. That's a much higher ratio of omega 3 to omega 6 than extra virgin olive oil.
