    My friend is asking me about Red Palm Oil: I have never heard of it, do any of you know anything about it. Thanks for your help.

    Good for frying. Has lots of antioxidants in it.

    The "red" (which can be yellow to deep red) is from carotene. In my area, you can get it at the African grocery store (we have a large African immigrant population).

  4. The cheapest place I have found red palm oil on the web is www.safarimkt.com
    I can get a 32 oz for less than $8.00
