So, what is matière grasses de palme?

"Matière grasses de palme" is a French term that refers to palm oil, which is extracted from the fruit of oil palm trees. This ingredient is a versatile and widely-used fat that is commonly found in many processed foods, such as baked goods, snacks, and margarine. It is a rich source of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, and is often used as a replacement for other vegetable oils due to its high stability and melting point. However, the production of palm oil has been associated with environmental concerns, such as deforestation and habitat destruction. As such, sustainable sourcing and responsible consumption of palm oil is becoming increasingly important in the food industry.
