I recently bought palm oil and when it arrived it was in a flake form. Does palm oil come in solid and flakes?.... or is it palm kernel oil if its in a flake form?? The supplier cannot answer me this as it was just sold to him as palm oil. Would be very grateful for any help :? :?

I've never seen palm oil in flakes, only palm kernel oil. I would guess that you have palm kernel oil.

I would also be on the lookout for another supplier, if they can't answer questions about what they are selling and are potentially selling things mislabeled. I personally would not be comfortable using their products if I couldn't be 100% sure of what they are.

I have used both the oil and the flakes. I actually prefer the flakes. They are easier to use.
They have the same SAP value, so they can be used interchangeably.

I like the flakes also. It seems to last longer. But I would also be careful and pay particular attention to which kind of palm oil or flakes that you get because not all of it has the same value.
When reading this I checked to see what values I was using. They were different. So I rechecked the suppliers website and sure enough they are different. Some types are .144 and some types are .178. I don't know exactly the differences in types of organic, homogenized, or rbd. I am not an expert yet.
While some are the same values, some are not.
On a side note though. When I switched over to flakes I forgot to change the values and instead of using .178 I used .144 and that particular recipe had alot of palm in it and all of a sudden it behaved really well and has turned out to be pretty good soap. I guess you could say I superfatted the right way by accident. That was a learning lesson for me on superfatting soap.
