So, what is fractionated palm kernel?

Fractionated palm kernel is a highly refined and processed food ingredient derived from the seeds of the oil palm tree. It is produced by separating the various components of palm kernel oil using a process called fractionation, which involves heating and cooling the oil to separate its solid and liquid components. Fractionated palm kernel is a semi-solid fat that has a high melting point and is rich in saturated fats. This makes it a popular ingredient in the food industry, especially in the production of baked goods, confectionery, and chocolate products. It is also used in cosmetics, soaps, and other personal care products. However, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, as well as its potential health risks due to its high saturated fat content.
