So, what is modified pálm oil?

Modified palm oil is a versatile and widely used food ingredient derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree. It undergoes a process of refining, fractionation, and hydrogenation to improve its stability and increase its shelf life. This type of palm oil has a neutral flavor and is high in saturated fats, making it ideal for use in baked goods, snacks, and fried foods. While some concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, modified palm oil remains a popular ingredient due to its affordability and functional properties in the food industry.
