Palm Oil - High in Vitamins?

A news article on the growth in production/sales of palm oil states that it provides high doses of certain vitamins.


Since palm oil is basically 100% fat, it can only contain fat-soluble vitamins, and the only one it usually contains in significant (although not "high") amounts is vitamin E (a little more than in most seed/nut/bean oils). An exception is unprocessed red palm oil, which contains a fair amount of vitamin A (from carotenes), although this is not the kind of palm oil used by the food industry.
