So, what is olio di palma?

Olio di palma, or palm oil, is a widely used vegetable oil that is extracted from the fruit of the oil palm tree. With its distinct bright orange-red color, this versatile ingredient is commonly used in cooking, baking, and frying, as well as in the production of a wide range of food products, from margarine and chocolate to instant noodles and ice cream. Palm oil has a neutral taste and a high smoke point, making it a popular choice for high-temperature cooking methods. However, it is also a highly controversial ingredient, as its cultivation has been linked to deforestation, habitat destruction, and human rights abuses in certain parts of the world.
