So, what is palm fat?

Palm fat is a versatile food ingredient that is derived from the fruit of the oil palm tree. It is a semi-solid fat that is rich in saturated and unsaturated fatty acids, making it ideal for a wide range of culinary applications. Palm fat is commonly used in the food industry as a replacement for butter or other animal fats due to its low cost and high stability. It is also a popular ingredient in the production of baked goods, confectionery, and snacks. Additionally, palm fat is known for its smooth texture and ability to enhance the flavor and aroma of dishes. Despite its versatility, the use of palm fat has been controversial due to concerns over its impact on the environment and the health implications of consuming high amounts of saturated fat.
