World Food Day 2020
Week 3 :
It’s World Food Day!
World Food Day is an international day celebrated every year around the world on 16 October in honour of the date of the founding of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations in 1945. The day is celebrated widely by many other organizations concerned with food security.
Let’s celebrate by making healthy food choices and do our part in reducing waste. Choose sustainable food systems and livelihoods. One example that consumers can explore is Malaysian palm oil. It contains vitamin E tocopherols and tocotrienols, making it a healthy and nutritious choice. Even better, the industry itself is being made sustainable through the mandatory Malaysian Sustainable Palm Oil (MSPO) scheme.
Food brings people together.
This week, discover the wonders of santan sawit!
Santan sawit (or palm-based santan) is a type of creamer produced from palm oil. Palm-based creamers have had an excellent reputation in the food manufacturing industry, playing this role as dairy fat replacers in powdered drinks, recombined cheese, and ice cream, to name a few. Unknown to many, santan sawit, which is also derived from palm oil can replace coconut milk, but with lower fat and a far superior stability profile.
Despite santan sawit’s lower fat content, making it a leaner alternative to traditional coconut milk, it still provides richness to cooking, and is able to fulfil bodily energy requirements. In addition to that, santan sawit also contains Vitamin E Tocotrienols, which has been proven to have multiple health benefits, one of which being stroke prevention.
