So, what is grasas de palma?

"Grasas de palma" refers to palm oil, a versatile and widely used ingredient in the food industry. Derived from the fruit of oil palm trees, it is high in saturated fats and has a unique composition that gives it a semi-solid texture at room temperature. It is commonly used in baked goods, snacks, and processed foods, as well as in cooking and frying. Palm oil is also a popular ingredient in non-food products such as soaps, detergents, and cosmetics. However, its production has been linked to deforestation and environmental issues in some regions, leading to increased demand for sustainable sourcing practices.
