Palm oil is a vegetable oil derived from the mesocarp of the oil palm tree. It’s often used as a butter replacement and is a great alternative with no trans fats, a neutral taste, high melting point and is 100% plant based.
When cultivated correctly and sustainably, palm oil is the best vegetable oil to harvest. Unfortunately, palm oil production has severely attributed to deforestation. It’s estimated that the farmland needed to produce it accounts for 10% of all global cropland. And to get that necessary space, countries where the oil palm trees grow best — like Malaysia and Indonesia — have had to clear forests to keep up with the demand.
The palm oil we use in our products are proudly RSPO certified — meaning we have ensured our palm oil is sustainably sourced. No deforestation and an ethical supply chain.
