  Palm oil pit
by sim1

So this is the product where it is all about, the palm oil pit. From this they can make the palm oil, which is used in so many different products. The fruit is reddish, about the size of a large plum and grows in large bunches. The oil is mostly used in soap, but also in lots of food products like chocolate, margarine, biscuits, chips and muesli. The edible oil is only produced from the inside of the fruit, so that is the white part shown in the picture. Okay, I'll stop.... end of lesson.... hahaha, I'll just try to sit quiet for a few hours until we get to the Gomantong Caves :-))
