If we want to take care of our health, we need to think long-term and review the daily choices for proper nutrition, it is from everyday gestures that the well-being of our body is built.

Palm oil is used in the food industry to replace animal fats (margarine, butter, lard), has a high resistance to oxidation which allows it to keep its properties intact even if involved in processes that require high temperatures .
Used for both sweet and savory processing even in solid form, palm oil gives the spreadable foods a degree of creaminess very pleasing to the palate, even if unhealthy, for this reason it is an extremely popular ingredient, preferred both for its excellent yield on the final product than for the cost significantly lower than other vegetable and animal oils.
