Alternative names to Palm oil

Did you know there are over 200 names for palm oil derivatives?

Once commodities just like palm oil disperse into the supply chain, the pathways to the final product are often complex and opaque. From the plantation to the super market shelf there could be multiple complex stages of production to the original palm kernel or palmoil that results in the ingredient not necessarily having to be listed as ‘palm oil’.

Please note:

* This list is a potential names list, some of the names listed on this page may also be derived from other oils. Further checks with ingredient manufacturers is required to ensure that ingredients on a product is NOT derived from palm oil.
