So, what is palmfett?

Palmfett, also known as palm oil, is a type of vegetable oil extracted from the fruit of the oil palm tree. It is widely used in the food industry as it has a high melting point and is solid at room temperature, making it an ideal ingredient for baked goods, confectionery, and margarine. Palmfett is also used in the production of cosmetics, soaps, and biofuels. While it is a versatile and inexpensive ingredient, concerns have been raised over the environmental impact of palm oil production, as it has been linked to deforestation, habitat destruction, and human rights violations in certain regions.
