Originated in West-Africa, palm oil is a type of edible vegetable oil which is derived from the fruits of the most efficient type of oilseed crop, i.e. oil palm tree. It has, today, emerged as the foremost global source of vegetable oil and currently represents the second most traded vegetable oil crop in the world. This can be attributed to its adequate availability, versatility in usage, and lower cost as compared to other vegetable oils.
