So, what is †palm oil?

Palm oil is a versatile and widely used vegetable oil that is extracted from the fruit of the oil palm tree. It is a popular ingredient in the food industry due to its neutral flavor, high smoke point, and excellent cooking properties. Palm oil is also used in the production of many other products, including cosmetics, soaps, and biodiesel fuel. While palm oil is a highly efficient crop with a high yield, there are concerns over the environmental impact of palm oil production and the social impact on local communities. Sustainable and responsible sourcing of palm oil is an important consideration for those looking to use this ingredient.
