Palm Oil vs Palm Kernel Oil? ? ?

Hi all, i just wondered if the more knowledgable of you could tell me what the difference is please.

I have read that Palm Oil isn't good for you, and contains a lot of saturated fat, then different sources say it is good for oyu and it is the Palm Kernel Oil which you want to try and avoid.

I just wondered because i have started to eat peanut butter and it tastes excellent, just noticed it contains Palm Oil thats all.

Thanks

Gaz.

    I believe palm oil and palm kernal oil are actually the same thing. The amount in peanut butter is so low that it's not worth considering.

    IIRC palm kernal is appx 75% saturated opposed to 50% in palm


    but, as stated above, levels are generally low in PB and therefore not worth losing sleep over
