Detroit, MI (FV Newswire) - Carotino Red Palm Oil, is a versatile new oil that offers many health benefits. It contains high levels of Vitamins A and E, Lycopene and Carotine. Carotino offers a light flavor, so it won't over power delicate food flavors and is natural, Kosher and Vegan.

Carotino Cooking Oil is different from other conventional cooking oils, not just because of its brilliant red color, but because it contains a number of healthy dietary components. Carotino Cooking Oil uses the pulp from the fruit, not the kernel, of Malaysian red palms as a key ingredient. It is 100% natural and Vegan-approved and Kosher. In addition to providing numerous vitamins, Carotino Cooking Oil is very versatile: its light taste will not overpower delicate dishes, and it can withstand high heat without burning. This versatility allows it to replace other oils in any recipe. While red palm oil has been used in Europe and Africa for many years, it is now gaining momentum in the United States.

While there are other red palm oils on the market, Carotino Cooking Oil is different because it uses a non-chemical process, instead of the conventional process which removes all of the healthy, natural carotene.

Following are some of the benefits of choosing Carotino Cooking Oil for your recipes and cooking:

• Carotino is derived from the fruit of the Red Palm Tree—not the kernel. It contains no trans fat (it’s not hydrogenated) and is less saturated than palm kernel oil.

• Carotino contains:
o High levels of Vitamin A and E and beta-carotene, which, when combined, act as antioxidants, destroying free radicals and acting as a protective agent against cancer, arterial sclerosis and aging.
o Healthy Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids.
o Lycopene, a powerful antioxidant abundant in red tomatoes that may help prevent prostate cancer and some other forms of cancer, heart disease, and other serious diseases.
• Carotino contains no:
o Artificial colorings or preservative, GMOs, trans fat, cholesterol or carbohydrates.

Carotino Red Palm Cooking Oil is available at fine gourmet and retail stores nationwide.
