We use very little palm oil and believe that it should be from sustainable sources which do not involve any deforestation. Our suppliers are members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) here is a link for more information - http://www.rspo.org/
Palm oil is produced from the pulp or flesh of the fruit of the oil palm. Palm oil contains an equal proportion of unsaturated acids, containing about 40% oleic acids (monounsaturated), 44% palmitic acids and oleic acids, which are also the major fatty acids produced by the body. It is a natural source of Vitamin E, and is also a very rich source of beta-carotene, an important source of Vitamin A.
