The problem with palm oil

It’s a phrase that’s been popularized in advertising for a motoring product. But when it comes to the use of palm oil in food manufacturing, Australian Orangutan Project president Leif Cocks says the same message applies: oils ain’t oils.”It’s estimated 300 football fields of rainforest per hour are being destroyed,” Cocks says of the repercussions in Malaysia and Indonesia as the global demand for cheap oil climbs. Estimates suggest 93 per cent of all palm oil produced is used in food.The food industry loves it for two reasons: it’s cheap and trans-fat-free.

  • If a product contains margarine it is highly likely the margarine will have been derived from palm oil.
