    Why do you need palm oil if the peanut is naturally oily?

    Companies like Skippy extract the natural peanut oil and replace it with palm oil because peanut oil separates while palm oil does not. And Americans can't be bothered to stir their peanut butter. icon_mad.gif

    Palm oil is used in many products. About half of food products use palm oil. It is normally listed as vegetable oil. And yes, people should try and reduce their use of it. The reason why it is used so often is probably because it is cheaper. It helps companies to maximize profits...which is all that matters...right? icon_confused.gif

    There are sustainable sources of Palm oil. If you are going to use it try and make sure that it is sourced from sustainable methods.
    For example nutella is made with palm oil but they are one of the few companies that sources their palm oil from sustainable sources.

    The taste for one. Also, olive oil is very unstable and if I'm not mistaken will also separate. You would probably have to refrigerate it in warmer climates.

    I don't see what the big fucking deal is about stirring your peanut butter occasionally. If you use a butter knife instead of a spoon it's very easy. Also I've found if you store it upside down after the initial stirring, there's no need for continued stirring.

    This is hard to watch, but if you buy palm oil you need to know what your purchases are doing to these animals and the environment.

    I doubt that there are very many Americans that don't consume palm oil. It is in so many foods, most people don't even realize it. Look for organic and/or sustainably harvested palm oil or an alternative oil.

    Coconut oil?

    Seems like a good thing? I know they have big farms that produce it and it's a lot like palm oil.

    But... but... I know they say it leads to desensitization, but I've just gotten used to using lubrication. And who needs friction burns down there!


    um... oh... what were you talking about? icon_redface.gif

    I would not be surprised if this is another Monsanta funded ad to discredit natural oils in favor of its GMO industrial sludge "canola oil".
