What is palm oil?
Palm oil is a type of edible vegetable oil that comes from the fruit of the oil palm tree, specifically the African oil palm Elaeis guineensis. It's native to West Africa but has been introduced to and is now cultivated in many tropical regions, with Indonesia and Malaysia currently being the world's largest producers.
Why is palm oil used in chocolate?
Palm oil is incorporated into chocolate for its ability to provide a smooth and creamy texture, its cost-effectiveness, and its aptitude for extending product shelf life. Additionally, it serves as a substitute for trans fats, offering a desired mouthfeel without the health concerns of hydrogenated oils. However, environmental and ethical considerations linked to its production have spurred many chocolate manufacturers to source sustainable options or seek alternatives.
Why is palm oil bad?
Palm oil production is associated with several environmental and social concerns. The cultivation often involves large-scale deforestation of tropical rainforests, leading to significant habitat loss for endangered species, such as orangutans. This deforestation also contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and impacts indigenous communities through land rights disputes. Unsustainable palm oil production can result in biodiversity loss and social conflicts, making it a contentious ingredient in the global market.
