So, what is palma?

Palma, also known as palm oil, is a versatile and widely used ingredient in the food industry. It is extracted from the fruit of oil palm trees and is known for its rich, golden color and mild flavor. Palma is commonly used in baked goods, snack foods, and margarine due to its high melting point and ability to withstand high temperatures. It is also a popular ingredient in Asian cuisine, particularly in Southeast Asia, where it is used in cooking and as a condiment. Despite its versatility, palma has been subject to controversy due to environmental concerns related to deforestation and the impact on wildlife habitats. As such, there is a growing demand for sustainable and responsibly sourced palma products.
