So, what is palmolie?

Palm oil is a widely used cooking oil that is derived from the fruit of oil palm trees. The oil is known for its high saturated fat content, which makes it a solid at room temperature. Palm oil is a versatile ingredient used in many types of food products, including baked goods, snacks, and processed foods. It has a neutral flavor and is popular among food manufacturers due to its low cost and high stability, which means it has a long shelf life. Despite its widespread use, palm oil has come under scrutiny due to environmental concerns related to deforestation and habitat loss for endangered species, such as orangutans.
