Is palmstearine vegan?

Palmstearine is a natural vegetable fat that is derived from the oil of palm trees. It is a semi-solid, white-colored fat that is commonly used in food production as an ingredient in margarine, shortening, and confectionery products. With its high melting point and stability, palmstearine is also used as a frying fat and in the production of soap and cosmetics. Palmstearine is rich in stearic acid, a type of saturated fat that is known to have a neutral effect on cholesterol levels. However, the production of palm oil and its derivatives, including palmstearine, has raised concerns about environmental impact and sustainability.
