If you buy homogenized palm oil, and it all melts for some reason, is it still homogenized? Meaning, if it sat in a hot garage, or even a hot truck while being delivered, does it re-harden still evenly distributed, or does it go back to its normal state?

I just stir it very well and let it re-solidify. I do notice a layer of stearic when my palm shortening, which is homogenized melts fully and re-solidifys, if I have gotten lazy and not stirred it periodically while it is cooling back down. Otherwise I scoop some from the top and some from the bottom, not the greatest procedure but it works for me. My palm shortening is 100% palm in 50lb cubes which I transfer to 5 gallon buckets
