Delicious Locally Made Palm Oil Free Food on Treatmo
If you're concerned about palm oil, try these foods that taste great without it.
Most people don't cook with palm oil or have a bottle of palm oil in their kitchen. However, many consume palm oil daily. Because of the smoothness it brings to processed foods such as spreads, chocolates, and bakery items, and due to its lower cost compared to other vegetable oils, it is used in about half of all packaged foods found in supermarkets.
While raw palm oil has benefits similar to other plant based oils, it does have a higher percentage of saturated fats which concerns some nutritionists. In addition, the palm tree grows in tropical rain forests and large scale cultivation requires converting old growth jungle into plantations which is happening at a rapid pace in South East Asia with predictable consequences.
For these reasons, many consumers who prefer cleaner eating may avoid products containing palm oil, especially when they purchase packaged foods. Treatmo has a variety of common better-for-you foods that are palm oil free.
