So, what is palmisto?

Palmisto, also known as palm kernel oil, is a versatile ingredient extracted from the seed of oil palm trees. With its neutral flavor and high melting point, it is widely used in food manufacturing, from baking to frying. Palmisto is a rich source of saturated and unsaturated fats, vitamin E, and antioxidants, making it a popular choice for health-conscious consumers. Additionally, palmisto's smooth texture and stable shelf life make it a preferred ingredient in cosmetic and personal care products. However, concerns about the sustainability and environmental impact of palm oil production have prompted some consumers and manufacturers to seek alternative ingredients.
