So, what is oleo de palma?

Oleo de palma, also known as palm oil, is a versatile and commonly used ingredient in the food industry. It is derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree and has a distinct reddish-orange hue due to its high content of carotenoids. Oleo de palma is rich in saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, making it a popular choice for cooking and baking. It is also used in the production of margarine, snacks, and other processed foods. Despite its widespread use, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production and its potential health effects when consumed in large amounts.
