The physical properties of RBD palm stearin differ widely from those of RBD palm oil. RBD palm stearin is available in a wider range of melting points and iodine value. RBD Palm stearin solid, yellow in color at room temperature.

Palm oil utilization and exchange are broadly spread over the world. In any case, its creation is commanded by not many countries. Palm oil commands the overall oil send out an exchange.
