So, what is babassu palm?

Babassu palm is a tropical plant native to Brazil, where it has been traditionally used for centuries. Its fruit produces an oil that is rich in lauric acid, making it similar to coconut oil. The oil extracted from babassu palm is commonly used in cooking and baking as a healthier alternative to other oils due to its low levels of saturated fat. Additionally, the oil is often used in personal care products such as soaps, shampoos, and lotions because of its moisturizing properties. Babassu palm trees are also important for the ecology of the Amazon rainforest, as they provide habitat for many species of animals and help to maintain the forest's biodiversity.
