So, what is olej palmowy?

Olej palmowy, or palm oil, is a vegetable oil derived from the fruit of oil palms. Its unique reddish-orange color comes from the high levels of carotenoids it contains. This versatile ingredient is used in a variety of food products, including baked goods, snack foods, and margarine. It has a neutral flavor and a high smoke point, making it suitable for frying and sautéing. However, the widespread use of palm oil has led to environmental concerns, as deforestation for palm plantations has resulted in habitat loss for endangered species and increased carbon emissions.
