I found some Red Palm Oil on Amazon and there's plenty of Palm Oil. Where can I buy Palm Kernel Oil though?

EDIT: Bumped up for more input

I never got around to buying any. I've got a freezer full of beef tallow so I have to use all that before buying any other cooking fats.

If you are Paleo, chances are you are not eating those products you mentioned, so no, you wouldn't be concerned about what is in those products. Of course I suspect you are merely an advertiser bot since you posted a product link as your first post talking up products not germane to this site.

@CaveMan_Mike: maybe 2% is poly, it is mostly saturated fats, including MCT's, and a healthy dose of monounsaturated.

Why would you want to? Doesn't it contain lots of pufa?

Rich, they don't recommend it for food purposes in their detailed description (following the more details link). How did this work out for you?

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.

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?

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.
