Palm oil is a common cooking oil that is vegan due to its ingredients but actually poses a challenge to vegans due to its methods for extraction. The food itself is a saturated fat-rich oil that comes from oil palms in Africa, Brazil, and southeast Asia/Oceania. Wide deforestation for palm oil has destroyed the homelands of many orangutans, making palm oil a kind of de facto non-vegan food. To avoid the ethical complications of palm oil but retain most of the same nutritional value, you can eat coconut oil.
