I'm under the impression that palm kernel oil is better somehow than palm oil but I don't know much about either. Can someone enlighten me about the differences?
A new international grocery store opened up in town. They had pre-peeled taro, sweet potato leaves, and smoked goat heads. Needless to say, my wife and I felt at home there. We went to the African section and it was walled with red palm oil. We... (more)

I have seen quite a lot about useage of Palm Oil and I still cant believe that people are still buying it. A lot are saying that you should buy African Palm oil but the more African you buy the more Indonesia will compete. There is an estimated... (more)

I've been looking into using red palm oil as a vitamin E "supplement," as vitamin E is the only nutrient I'm not hitting high levels on (according to Cron). Apparently virgin palm oil is super-high in tocepherols but I can't seem to find any... (more)

Or are they good at all for anyone that is serious about Paleo. I am on no Dairy, Legumes and Grains paleo diet. And love my potatoes, my cholesterol LDL is high (4.7mmol/l). I buy a product in South Africa called Fresh n Krispy... (more)
As a general rule, anything deep fried in anything is probably best avoided, as this implies heated oil that has now sat around for quite some time before you eat it. Home made food, Fiedler in coconut oil or pastured pork lard would be much better. (more)
I think I've found a real winner for a paleo friendly snack - any thoughts? Only plantains, palm oil, and a bit of salt! Tastes great too http://www.inkacrops.com/snacks/info_box/inkachips_4oz.htm Seems like the only concern would be with... (more)
