Palm oil, particularly virgin or "red" palm oil, is a traditional fat that has been a part of the human diet for at least 5000 years. For generations, red palm oil has been revered as both a nutritious food and a valuable medicine. It was prized by the pharaohs of ancient Egypt as a sacred food. The oil was so highly valued that it was entombed with the pharaohs so that they would have access to it in the afterlife.
