So, what is grasa palma?

Grasa palma, also known as palm oil, is a popular food ingredient derived from the fruit of oil palms. It is a versatile and stable oil that is commonly used in the food industry for its neutral flavor, high melting point, and smooth texture. Grasa palma is also rich in vitamin E and beta-carotene, which makes it a valuable ingredient in the formulation of food products, especially baked goods, confectionery, and processed snacks. However, the production of grasa palma has been linked to environmental and social concerns, including deforestation, habitat destruction, and human rights violations, which has sparked a global debate on its sustainability and ethical consumption.
