So, what is matière grasse de palmiste?

Matière grasse de palmiste, also known as palm kernel oil, is a type of edible oil derived from the kernel of the oil palm fruit. It has a distinct ivory color and a neutral flavor, making it a popular ingredient in a wide range of food products. Due to its high saturated fat content, matière grasse de palmiste is often used as a substitute for butter in baked goods and as a frying oil. It is also used in the production of non-food items such as soap and cosmetics. Despite its versatility, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, leading to efforts to promote sustainable sourcing practices.
