So, what is palmito?

Palmito, also known as heart of palm, is a delicious and nutritious food ingredient that comes from the inner core of certain palm tree species. It has a delicate, slightly sweet flavor and a tender, crunchy texture that makes it a popular choice for salads, dips, and other dishes. Rich in vitamins, minerals, and fiber, palmito is a healthy addition to any diet. It is also low in calories and fat, making it an ideal ingredient for those looking to maintain a healthy weight. Palmito is a sustainable food choice as well, as it is harvested without damaging the palm tree.
