1. Extend the storage time of palm oil

Free fatty acids are removed from crude oil during the deacidification stage of the refinery. The high content of free fatty acids will cause the oil to deteriorate in a short period of time, and the deteriorated palm oil cannot be eaten, which greatly affects the storage time of palm oil.

2. Health Benefits

The refining process helps reduce the amount of harmful components in palm oil, such as free fatty acids and impurities. This makes it a healthier choice compared to crude palm oil. Refined palm oil is also rich in vitamin E, which has antioxidant properties that benefit skin health.

4. Refining type can be selected

Palm oil refining can be divided into physical refining and chemical refining, depending on the refining capacity and the by-products that investors want to obtain. The main difference is the deacidification part, where chemical deacidification removes the acid from the oil through acid-base neutralization. Physical deacidification, extracting free fatty acids from palm oil by high temperature evaporation.
