Frequently asked questions

Juka's red palm oil is harvested every three months by small scale farmers in small villages of West Africa. You have seen in our videos that our oil is sustainable and organic. A question that is now arising is "Is our oil RSPO certified?". Round Table on Sustainable Palm Oil or RSPO is a certification, put together by some plantation companies, manufacturers, environmental NGOs and social NGOs that produce or use palm oil. According to the body, "RSPO certification assessments need to be initiated by palm oil producers, by contacting one of the approved Certification Bodies. The cost of audits will be borne by the producer who seeks RSPO certification". While this is a great initiative for the palm oil producers in Asia and South America to assure sustainability, the small scale farmers in African villages are merely left out. They simply do not have access to these RSPO certification bodies, just as they do not have access to the organic certification agencies. The closest organic certification agents to Africa are in Europe and it will cost the small scale farmers thousands of dollars to be able to get this "RSPO certificate" and the "organic seal". Is this a fair deal for the small scale farmers in African villages? Absolutely not, because red palm oil's region of origin is West Africa. Red palm oil is simply part of Africa's heritage and culture more than any other part of the world.

Here At Juka's Organic Co. & All, Our Partners Stand Against Deforestation. 

​Our Organic Red Palm Oil is 100 % sustainable, it's the simple reason why it taste so pure and authentic. We import our extra virgin red palm oil from the continent of origin, West Africa. Juka's Organic Co. has partnered up with women from small villages of West Africa to exclusively supply their hand selected, unrefined sustainable organic red palm oil.  All the women that work with Juka's use the traditional method of natural palm oil extraction, this is the same method that has been used throughout small West African villages for centuries. The best palm oil is the sustainable type that comes from the continent of origin West Africa. Palm  trees are part of African villages and have been there for centuries, each generation of women produce their palm fruit oil as their main source of income and proudly pass it on  to  the next.

The red color comes from the natural presence of betacarotene and lycopene, which gives carrots and tomatoes their distinctive red and orange colors. Once digested, the body converts these to vitamin A. The equivalent amount of organic red palm oil offers 15 times the betacarotene of a carrot. As such, one teaspoon of the extra red palm oil supplies a child with the daily recommended allowance of vitamin A.
