Palm Oil in PB


#1

Just went to the supermarket with the intention of getting some PB, and looking on the ingrediant list of all the PB's, mainly the 'organic' ones was Palm Oil. Peanut content was about 96% with about 3%+ palm oil and some sea salt.

Whats the verdict on this stuff? Avoid it or get involved?

Palm oil is probably better than your typical run of the mill shit you find on the counter. At minimum, palm oil is naturally found with a high fat content similar to coconut oil. It has a red tint to it due to the high content of beta carotene.
