Did you know that many store packaged foods contain palm oil?

By

Have you ever wondered what’s really in your food? Even if you did, we can tell you that many packaged foods you will find in your local supermarket contain ingredients you didn’t even know or heard of before. .

Palm oil is often disguised and hidden behind many different ingredient names. It can become even more confusing as a consumer when companies will only disclose ingredients like 'vegetable oil' when in fact it is palm oil. In Australia it is not legally required to label palm oil on products.
