So, what is pálm kernel oil?

Palm kernel oil is a versatile and popular ingredient in the food industry. Extracted from the kernel of the palm fruit, it is a rich source of saturated and unsaturated fatty acids that lend a creamy texture and distinct flavor to many dishes. With its high smoke point, it is also a popular choice for deep frying and baking. Palm kernel oil is a common ingredient in baked goods like bread, cookies, and pastries as well as in non-dairy products such as margarine and ice cream. However, concerns about deforestation and environmental impact have led to increased scrutiny of its production and use.
