Illipe oil is a vegetable fat from the nut (known as the "false illipe nut") of the Shorea stenoptera tree, sometimes used as a cocoa butter substitute.[1] The word Illipe is derived from the Tamil word for the tree Iluppai (இலுப்பை). The true illipe nut is from the species Madhuca latifolia, Family Sapotaceae.[1]
