  • lesser of two evil oils

    If you had to choose between soybean oil vs. refined palm oil, which would you pick? I currently use a packaged condiment containing soybean oil, but today I found a brand which uses palm oil...are both equally bad, or is one less so than the other?

    I'd pick the refined palm oil. Unrefined is actually primal-ly okay, so just as a hunch, I'd go for the refined palm rather than the soybean oil. You don't want those nasty GMOs.

    Who says back fat is a bad thing? Maybe on a hairy guy at the beach, but not on a crab.

      Palm oil is fine. There aren't supposed to be any "leftover" chemicals from the refining process (assuming it's chemically refined rather than mechanically), and it's a mostly saturated fat from a tropical plant.

        def the palm oil, actually on a scale of badness I don't think its really that bad anyways but considering how I react to soy.. (Not pretty) its no contest
