So, what is fractionated palm oil?

Fractionated palm oil is a highly refined and processed vegetable oil that is derived from the palm plant. It is produced through a process called fractionation, which separates the different components of the oil based on their melting points. This results in a clear, odorless, and tasteless oil that is highly stable and resistant to oxidation. Fractionated palm oil is commonly used in food products such as margarine, baked goods, and snack foods, as well as in personal care products and cosmetics. While it has been criticized for its impact on the environment, it remains a popular choice due to its low cost and versatility in various applications.
