So, what is palmoil?

Palm oil is a versatile ingredient derived from the fruit of oil palm trees. It's a popular ingredient in food products due to its high yield and low cost. Palm oil has a distinctive reddish-orange color and is rich in saturated and unsaturated fats, making it suitable for frying, baking, and cooking. Besides its culinary applications, palm oil is also used in cosmetics, soaps, and biofuels. While palm oil is a controversial ingredient due to its impact on the environment and concerns over deforestation, efforts are being made to promote sustainable palm oil production.
