So, what is matiere grasse de palme?

"Matiere grasse de palme" is a French term that translates to "palm fat." It is a versatile and commonly used ingredient in food processing due to its unique properties. Extracted from the flesh of the palm fruit, this fat is solid at room temperature, making it an ideal substitute for butter or other solid fats in baked goods and confectionery. Additionally, it has a high melting point, making it useful in frying applications. However, there is growing concern over the environmental impact of palm oil production, and many consumers and manufacturers are seeking more sustainable alternatives.
