So, what is rostlinný tuk?

Rostlinný tuk, or vegetable fat, is a type of plant-based fat that is commonly used as a substitute for animal fats in cooking and baking. It is typically derived from sources such as soybeans, palm oil, or canola oil, and has a high smoke point, making it ideal for frying and sautéing. Rostlinný tuk is also often used in the production of processed foods, such as margarine, chocolate spreads, and snack foods. While it may be a healthier alternative to animal fats, it is important to note that some sources of rostlinný tuk, like palm oil, have controversial environmental impacts.
