A more simple answer: Don't. Unless you can personally vouch for the source, the production of this stuf generally has dire social and irreversible environmental impacts. A lot of times even with "organics". Typically local's land rights are stolen or forcibly purchased and swaths of natural habits will never return.
Check out the documentary "HOME". They only briefly touch on palm oil but in general it's a must-watch film anyhow.
Never bought any but this place sell it organic:
Ok, amazon is worthless for this and a search of the internet only brings up refined/expeller non-food grade or product that doesn't mention any details at all.
Anyone have a source for food-grade palm kernel oil?
iHerb carries at least two brands of organic food-grade red palm oil, here http://www.iherb.com/Jungle-Products-Red-Palm-Oil-14-oz-397-g/30274 and here http://www.iherb.com/North-American-Herb-Spice-Co-CocaPalm-Virgin-Coconut-Red-Palm-Oil-8-fl-oz-240-ml/15399.
I know hydrogenated palm oil has tons of transfats, but I’m seeing non-hydrogenated palm oil in products like Newman’s Own cookies and Skippy Natural peanut butter. Neither show any transfats on their labels, but I’m curious as to whether or not I should be concerned regardless.
