Evidence of Palm Oil's Heart Benefits

Am J Clin Nutr. 1991 Apr;53(4 Suppl):989S-1009S.
Introduction: nutritional aspects of palm oil.
Cottrell RC.

Leatherhead Food Research Association, Surrey, UK.

The production, composition, and food uses of palm oil are outlined in this introduction to a detailed appraisal of the nutritional and health implications of the use of palm oil in the food supply. The putative role of dietary fats and oils in general, and of palm oil in particular, in the etiology of coronary heart disease and cancer is critically assessed. It is concluded that the evidence available is difficult to interpret unambiguously. Some evidence to suggest that the minor components of palm oil might have useful biological effects is also discussed.
