Palm oil is currently the most produced oil, with an annual global output of more than 50 million tons, followed by soybean oil at about 38 million tons, and the remaining oils basically do not exceed 10 million tons. The main reason why the output of palm oil is high is its high yield. The oil output per hectare can reach 4 tons, which is equivalent to more than 500 catties of oil per mu; we know that peanuts have the highest oil yield per mu of conventional oil crops. The data we learned a few years ago The average oil yield is more than 100 catties per mu—it can be seen that to harvest the same oil product, palm oil requires a smaller production area. More importantly, these production areas are mostly concentrated in the tropical regions of Malaysia and Indonesia. Most palm plantations are former tropical rainforests. Compared with traditional agricultural countries, the cost of using these lands is also lower. Low land costs are the biggest factor behind low palm oil prices.As mentioned above, China imports a lot of palm oil, about 7 million tons, of which about 5 million tons are used for cooking oil – and a large part of these oils enters home packaging, yes, those blended oils, we generally listen to The soybean blended oil and peanut blended oil obtained do not mean that soybeans or peanuts account for the absolute majority—the majority may be palm oil, and the main reason is that palm oil is cheaper. However, palm oil does not just play this kind of unknown role. At least one food industry has a big use, that is fried food, the most prominent ones are instant noodles and Western-style fast food restaurants. Palm oil is a more suitable choice for fried food, because palm oil can withstand long-term high temperature, while ordinary vegetable oil will oxidize and deteriorate after a short time of frying, turn yellow and black, and easily produce carcinogens, but palm oil can be fried for a long time without changing color. This can be achieved mainly because the saturation of palm oil is relatively high, even higher than that of some animal oils, so it has good stability. In addition, the high melting point of palm oil can be used in some food additives,
