So, what is palm and palm kernel õil?

Palm and palm kernel oil are two types of vegetable oils extracted from the fruit and seed kernels of the oil palm tree. They are widely used in the food industry due to their high levels of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, which provide a smooth texture and rich flavor to many products. Palm oil is often used in baked goods, confectionery, and margarine, while palm kernel oil is used in chocolates, ice cream, and personal care products. However, concerns have been raised about the environmental impact of palm oil production, leading to increased demand for sustainable sourcing practices.
