Palm Oil in Disguise

Palm Oil in Disguise

Palm Oil Investigations Facebook page recently posted this article on ingredients to look for when it comes to Palm Oil. We thought it was a great article to share.

Only 3 vegetable oils must be labelled in food products in Australia and New Zealand. Those are peanut oil, sesame oil and soy bean oil.

The reason for this is that a percentage of the population suffers allergies to these oils. Note: Palm sugar and vegetable gum is not palm oil.

This list is a guide only. If an ingredient in the product you are researching has any one of the following names then it is highly likely to be derived from palm oil or have palm content. Some of these ingredients can be derived from other sources.
